People are mocking Cameron's Christmas message with 'You ain't no Christian bruv'

Post by sassy on Thu Dec 24, 2015 3:58 pm

David Cameron delivered his Christmas message as festivities kick off up and down the country.
He allured to the UK's Christian roots:
As a Christian country, we must remember what [Jesus'] birth represents: peace, mercy, goodwill and, above all, hope.
I believe that we should also reflect on the fact that it is because of these important religious roots and Christian values that Britain has been such a successful home to people of all faiths and none.
However, only two in five Brits now identify as Christian.
In fact, a whole collection of people on the internet are calling into question Cameron's own religious beliefs.
Asking whether some of his actions as PM really sit side-by-side with peace, goodwill and mercy with the hashtag #YouAintNoChristianBruv.

People referenced the poor and the hungry





Yrotitna@yrotitna
The Tory government has increased child poverty, homelessness, zero hours contracts, prejudice against the disabled #YouAintNoChristianBruv


Others suggested there was no room at the inn





Liam Young@liamyoung
Poor are poorer than ever, the hungry are hungrier than ever and for many there's no room at the inn. Call-me-Dave #youaintnochristianbruv




What about charity?





Chris Furlong@SocialistChris
Cameron, leader of most unchristian party.Bedroom Tax, attacks on disabled,foodbanks. Gives country a moral lecture #YouAintNoChristianBruv


The Scottish wanted in on the action





Jamie McIntyre@_JamieMcIntyre
Isn't it time we had a Scottish equivalent of the #YouAintNoChristianBruv David Cameron hashtag? #YourNoaChristianPal





In November #YouAintNoMuslimBruv trended worldwide following a stabbing at Leytonstone train sation, east London.
The prime minister himself even uttered the words during a speech in the Midlands shortly after the incident.

The largest majority religious group is Christianity at 45 percent
Again Christianity is an ideology lik any religious belief system, which the economical side in Christian is goof and the the politics will always be the the right. and when hardline very bad
All of that aside, we do have a monarchy, of which he Queen is head of state and is also the head of the church of England.
So whilst she is  the head of state, then fundementally this country is Christain. Its certainly secular within its laws, but its culture and history make the Uk for the forseeable future also Christian. Not only that and you have 42,000 Christian denominations.
You would first have to prove tthat this deity does indeed exist.
Second, that the bible is his inspired word and completely accurate/
So without any evidence of the wo points, whio can say what is right in regards to works collated centuries after the events

Again it is not down to others toi say whether they say who is a Christian or not or Muslim or not, being as its all based on nothing substanciated. Anywaythe inbivifual will see themselves this way as a Christian o Muslims, no not matter if all some can do is deny people their identities

Eds is right, if Corbyn had given the public the 'expected' message, his would be being pulled apart here too...

Think all three of you have missed the point.  #Youain'tnoMuslimbruv came from what a man said to the person who carried out the stabbing in the underground station.  It was said because the person who said it did not think THE ACTIONS of the person carrying out the stabbing were what being a Muslim stands for.

#Youain'tnoChristianbruv said to Cameron, is because he says he is a Christian, last year he even said he was here to do 'God's work' and yet his actions, actively taking from the poor and giving to the rich, are the very antithesis of Christian belief and tennants.

Great so you would be happy for a far right to say to someone defined black that :
#Youain'tnoEnglismanbruv

I think quite rigtly he would have every right to be pissed off, when people not authorised to legally decide and change someones identiuty bvecause that person is deciding for the person they just labelled
Great what the Muslim said was powerful.
You want the identity of those who kill in Islam to not be definned as Muslims?
Do you think that makes any real diffierence when it is the connections within their faith people do see that concerns them?
So if you want to seperate something, the extremist terrorists from Musims, you have to stand by those looking to combat extremism and Islamism who are Muslim. reformists

No, I did get it sass
Just seemed a tad unfair - damned if he said and damned if he didn't
Same as Corbyn and his speech
