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

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?

I know you were being sarcastic, but there is a case to be made that corruption and inequalities still persist in Britain. Societies might have gotten fairer and freer (although this is reversing fast) but morality springs from the individual, not societies. Socialism has created a society that has devalued the individual and created dependency and widespread irresponsibility by putting the economy above people.
