Christians aren’t assertive enough. They need to take a lesson from the vocal LGBT+ lobby.

UK hate group Christian Concern is dismayed that more people in England and Wales are identifying as LGBT+ according to the recently published 2021 census. Tim Dieppe, above, CCs Head of Public Policy, blames pushy gay and transgender people for undermining Christian influence.

The census also revealed that 112,000 people described themselves as pansexual, 28,000 as asexual, and 15,000 as homosexual.

A glum Dieppe—a stooge chosen by the outfit’s deranged founder Andrea Minichiello Williams, above, to help spread her venomous ideas—yesterday (Thursday) homed in on the census, saying:

Those willing to identify themselves as having an LGBT+ identity therefore make up 3.7% of the population. This is lower than the latest church membership figures (c.10%) or church attendance figures at around 4.7%. Of course, the key difference here is that LGBT+ is growing rapidly, whilst church membership and attendance is in decline.

Similarly, the LGBT+ lobby is having a disproportionate influence on public policy for its size, whereas the influence of Christianity is declining.

This is rich, considering that Christianity Daily this week pointed out that:

Christianity has a special relationship with the government, for example, the head of the Church of England is also the head of state, and bishops hold seats in the legislative body. In the past, many people saw institutions such as the Church, monarchy, and government as untouchable and respected.

And many still do. Because of pressures exerted on lawmakers, the UK would not be lagging behind other Western nations that have outlawed conversion therapies and approved assisted suicide.

FFS, there’s even a Christians in Parliament group, chaired by Sir Gary Streeter, above, which is “committed to supporting Christians across all parties in living out their faith in their work in Parliament.”

Dieppe concluded:

If only Christians were as vocal and proud of their views and identity in Christ! Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned there?

The Christianity Daily report reveals that, according to the census, for the first time in history, less than half of the people in England and Wales identify as Christians. This reflects a persistent trend in which support for the Anglican Church, “a significant tenet of the British establishment,” is declining.

The number of persons identifying as Christians has decreased by 17 percentage points since 2011 to 46 percent. In addition, the number of persons identifying as having “no religion” has sharply increased.

“No religion” today makes up 37 percent of the population, or 22 million people, compared to 14 percent 20 years ago.

It suggests that the there are now fewer believers because of the numerous scandals and controversies that have plagued these institutions in recent years; from the financial misconduct of the royal family to the cover-up of sexual abuse by the Church of England.

That might be true, but my guess is that people today, especially the young, are simply less inclined to believe in the bullshit on which Christianity—indeed all religions—are based.

  1. I don’t think most of those who say they are Christians know to what they claim to believe. If “The Sun” or the “Daily Mirror” or similar newspapers provided a series of clear and accurate articles on what belief in God and in the bible requires the number of believers would drop dramatically.

    Could they really believe in a virgin who has been married being impregnated by a God? The sheer mechanics of the impregnation would be fascinating. There is so much else of an impossible kind. Bread being turned into flesh and wine into blood. Jesus walking and water, feeding the five thousand. So many contradictions and all the many parts of the bible, especially the Old Testament that must be kept unread and unexamined. So much for the bible being the word of God and true.

    Christian belief relies on acceptance without thinking and belief as a matter of course. That habit is installed in so many children from their youngest days. A clearly written analysis of what Christian belief involves would come as a shock.

    1. Anyone who reads ‘The Sun’ is capable of believing anything.

      1. I’ll take your word for that. I’ve never read “The Sun” I was using my example based on its reputation.

  3. Yes, secularists in the UK often note the advantages enjoyed by Christianity as the official religion of the state: bishops in the Lords, and the Monarch as head of the Church of England. Ironically traditional Christians also feel beleaguered in an increasingly secular society: toleration of homosexuality seems especially threatening to them.
    With more irony, I often see posts on another platform from a local C of E clergyman who is gay: he is a promoter of LGBT rights and a passionate Socialist, but he is also an obsessive supporter of the Monarchy and the Royal Family!
