Christian Concern’s demented Williams, above, apparently believes the Brexit vote could give Britain the green light to turn back the clock regarding human rights.
According to this report, Williams and Christian Concern’s co-founder Pastor Ade Omooba said in a joint message to their supporters:
Last year, on May 5 when David Cameron stood in front of 10 Downing Street having won an overall majority (albeit slim) for his government we felt peculiarly subdued at Christian Concern.
As far as we could tell, he who had presided over the dismantling, in law, of God’s first building block of society by introducing same-sex ‘marriage’, had ‘got away with it’ and suffered no consequences for such devastating action.
The coalition government had been the last in a succession of administrations that had consistently departed from God’s Truth in governing the nation – whether with regard to the protection of life, fairness to the poor, fairness in education, upholding marriage and family, or the privileging of Islam and other religions and philosophies over Christianity. But the people had not felt strongly enough to register protest.
The vote for Brexit on 23 June was a protest vote. Some parts ugly no doubt, many parts good … Brexit was a moment when, whatever you think of the outcome, the people said ‘we can’t go on like this.’
This was a vote for change. At best, the vote to leave was a vote to reassert our foundational principle of democratic accountability.
The message continued:
In 2007 the EU deliberately and defiantly avoided any reference to God or Christianity in the Lisbon treaty. The project ended up undermining democracy and imposing enlightenment philosophy – humanism – onto European countries …
Let’s not kid ourselves however. Whilst the EU has been the driving force for much of the Equalities legislation that has been used to silence Christian voices and discriminate against Christian witness, it is WE in the United Kingdom who have been the keenest in pursuing it; we have been the leading liberalising nation in Europe. And our courts, our elites, even church elites have not protected those that would seek to speak truth into the vacuum.
Too often it has fallen to an agency like us at Christian Concern through our Christian Legal Centre, to defend harassed Christians in the Courts in the face of hostile legislation, or legislation that is interpreted in a hostile way. Ironically it has been the European Court of Human Rights that has delivered justice; delivered Christian freedom where our national courts have refused to do so; such is their blindness, so steeped in political correctness and fear.
The referendum has exposed a deeply divided nation with elements of racism, hatred and anger. God longs to bless our nation. But this will not happen without repentance. And true repentance requires action.
We need boldness to proclaim the gospel. There are reports of increased openness to God on the streets of our cities where Christians are boldly taking to the streets and offering to pray for people. We long to see more of this.
Only Christianity can provide a safe and secure moral foundation for our nation. It is Jesus who has the power to transform lives and change nations. Radical obedience to His commands will lead the nation forwards. It is Jesus who has the power to transform lives and change nations. Radical obedience to His commands will lead the nation forwards. We pray that God will call and use you in his sovereign plans and purposes for establishing his kingdom here on earth. Pray for God’s will to prevail in all the turmoil and chaos. He is working. His plans will prevail.
He is turning the political world upside down. He will raise up new people. Let us pray for Godly leaders to be raised up across all the political parties – and in all spheres of society – who can help to turn this nation back to Him.
