← David Cameron says the UK is a Christian country

Steve Zara's Avatar Jump to comment 23 by Steve Zara

Describing himself as a "committed" but only "vaguely practising" Christian, the PM admitted he was "full of doubts" about big theological issues.

But he staunchly defended the role of religion in politics and said the Bible in particular was crucial to British values.

Is this is supposed to make some sort of sense? How can anyone honestly defend the role of religion in anything if you doubt its foundations? How can anyone be so inept as to defend the role of religion while openly admitting you doubt its foundations? What the heck does being a "committed" Christian mean if you are only "vaguely practising"?

I can't make any sense at all out of what Cameron is saying.
