GEORGE CAREY – NO SOFT TOUCHOR SOFT TO THE TOUCH?

From THE TELEGRAPH:

In a stark message, Lord Carey said the Church of England needs to be "tougher" and more outspoken in preserving its beliefs. It came as he said migrants wanting to come to the UK should respect the country's Christian heritage and warned the country could be in "deep trouble" if immigration and population keeps growing at the current rate.

Lord Carey said: "I think we need a tougher Church. We Christians are very often so soft that we allow other people to walk over us and we are not as tough in what we want, in expressing our beliefs, because we do not want to upset other people. We have got to be more outspoken."

Lord Carey said migrants should show an understanding of Christian heritage while the immigration system needs to focus more on values

He said: "I worry about my grandchildren. I want this country to carry on being one that values the Christian heritage, but most of all values the democratic standards and all that this country has fought over. It has been a battle – when you think, it has only been in last 100 years that the average man or woman has received the vote, so it has been a tough struggle. Our values therefore are very important to us, we want other people to recognise that and to be committed to it as well."

He warned that if concerns about the level and nature of immigration were not addressed, it simply would play into the hands of the far right British National Party.

  1. If only that Jesus dood hadn’t said all that stuff about turning the other cheek and living and dying by the sword, etc.

  2. I´m so pleased to see Lord Carey of Clifton prance around his own backyard ¨warning¨ against infiltration…clearly a subject he knows something about since he aided and abetted the Nigerian CANA takeovers in Virginia, U.S.A…that ++George will do/say anything to stur up trouble…is he medicated for that problem? Perhaps he ought have his mouth wired shut as he goes about doing the ¨nudge.¨ I wonder if this man has ever FIXED anything? Or simply done self-imagined troubleshooting with disasterous result!

  3. A substantial period of silence would be more suitable for Lord Carey. Righty descriped,in my view, as the worst Archbishop of Canterbury in two hundred years
