In regards to the churches, you do know that belief in Christanity is on the decline, I blame the goverment and capitalism myself. Due the the stupidity of political correctness they have done everything in their power to ensure people don't get offended by anything, one of the casualties has been religion in general; and that we are more focused on wealth then spirituality."
MR S, Yes there is a decline in Christianity and the government with their stupidity of political correctness have done everything in their power to ensure people don't get offended by anything, one of the casualties has been religion in general. Except it seems to have affected Islam less. You have to agree that muslims groups in the UK do put pressure on local authorities to remove Christian symbols, because it offends them. This is where there is an imbalance, it is not a level playing fields and muslim groups know this. They know that vocal pressure will cause local authorities to yield. Labour councils are the worst. It does seem at times that muslims want to rid all references to Christianity including use of the term Christmas,or removing piggy banks from banks. This IS happening and people can see it happening. Let's face it the liberal left are facilitating and encouraging this behaviour. This is consistently happening across the globe. Could you imagine if we tried to ban the Ilamic festival or the term Ramadam. We'd never hear the end of it.
I know it's a source from this site but it is relevant.
"Its also common Knowledge that those from Eastern Orgins are far more spiritual and religous then those from the west and this fundamental belief in God has been carried down through generations regardless if your Sikh, Hind, Muslim. We in the west how ever have lost our spirituality and are more focused on making money then anything else."
I agree these groups are more spiritual. Notice the correlation between religion and 2nd and 3rd world countries. For some people all they have is religion.
I think you are using a very broad brush when you say we are all only intersted in making money. No, personally, I just want to live, live in peace, without have any religion thrust down my throat and not being dictated to by minority groups.
If you have faith in a religion that's fine, but it is also peoples right to not to. Sounds to me like you are suggesting that once Christianity has declined and the growth of Islam in the UK overtakes Christianity it should become an Islamic state. Which is lets face it the ultimate aim anyway.
"The last thing we need is a race war in Britain and i can honestly see it heading that way"
I think your worst fears will happen. People have had enough.
