The former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams called Great Britain a “post-Christian nation.” He would know as I’m pretty sure he’s the post-Christian Rowan Williams.


Williams told the Sunday Telegraph that Britain is no longer a “nation of believers,” and the era of widespread worship is over.

He characterized Britain as a “post-Christian” nation, “in the sense that habitual practice for most of the population is not taken for granted,” reports the BBC.

Williams elaborated on his statements by explaining that “the cultural memory is still quite strongly Christian.” However, “It’s a matter of defining terms. A Christian country as a nation of believers? No. A Christian country in the sense of still being very much saturated by this vision of the world and shaped by it? Yes.”

Few did less to stop the tide of secularism from rising. Now he’s just pointing out the carnage.

I’m also not sure of the characterization of Britain being no longer a nation of believers. They are believers, just not in anything recognizably Christian. They’ve become adherents to the Church of tolerance of all things anti-Christian and nebulous spiritual silliness.
