← RDFRS UK/Ipsos MORI Poll #2: UK Christians oppose special influence for religion in public policy

RDfan's Avatar Jump to comment 6 by RDfan

But wait: isn't this apparent decline in Christian belief in the UK the cause of the moral malaise that we see in the country today?

Need I remind everyone of the ravenous gang riots of last summer; the cringe-worthy creaming of state coffers by politicians; the daylight thievery of city bankers; the immoral phone-tapping of the gutter press? Shall I go on?

Isn't this moral decline, this Broken Britain, this Un-Cool Britannia a sign that what we need is more, not less, good-old-fashioned Christian virtue?
