Westminster Party Leaders Focus on Christianity in Christmas Message (Praise the Lord!)

Posted on December 24, 2014 at 3:40 AM
 
Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Labour leader Ed Miliband have spoken about the centrality of Christ and the importance of Christian values in the UK in their Christmas messages.
 
In a continuing theme of celebrating the UK's Christianity, David Cameron said that, "Among the joyous celebrations we will reflect on those very Christian values of giving, sharing and taking care of others."
He continued: "This Christmas I think we can be very proud as a country at how we honour these values through helping those in need at home and around the world.
"So this Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of Christ with friends, families and neighbours, let us think about those in need at home and overseas, and of those extraordinary professionals and volunteers who help them."
 
Ed Miliband, despite not believing in God, continued with the Christian theme, focusing on a truce by soldiers one hundred years ago on the Western front saying, "In the midst of a tragic conflict the generosity, hope and sense of human solidarity that is characteristic of the Christian faith and culture came to the fore. What an extraordinary and unexpected event.
"We need the same sense of compassion in the face of the suffering and hatred that afflicts parts of our world. I am proud that the Labour movement has such deep roots in the Christian tradition of social activism and solidarity in the United Kingdom."
 
Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, who has admitted that he is not an "active believer", said that at the very heart of Christmas is "the birth of Jesus Christ, a time of joy and celebration for Christians around the world".
