Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Lord Rowan Williams said Britain was not a nation of believers and that the era of widespread worship was over.Lord Williams cannot allow this faux pas from the odious Tory leader to pass without comment. England is a Christian nation?! The cheek!
It comes after Prime Minister David Cameron said people in Britain should be confident of its status as "a Christian country".
Lord Williams, who retired from being the leader of the Church of England in 2012, said: "If I say that this is a post-Christian nation, that doesn't mean necessarily non-Christian.And who's doing is that, Lord Williams? If the flock should stray do you blame the sheep? Or the shepherd?
"It means the cultural memory is still quite strongly Christian."
He added: "But [Britain is] post-Christian in the sense that habitual practice for most of the population is not taken for granted.
"A Christian nation can sound like a nation of committed believers and we are not that. Equally, we are not a nation of dedicated secularists.
"It's a matter of defining terms. A Christian country as a nation of believers? No.
