Christians must toughen up and speak out: Lord Carey

ICC Note

“Unless the Christians wake up,” the Cardinal said, “life may be Islamised and Christianity will not have the strength to imprint its character on the life of people, not to say society.”

01/08/2009 UK (The Christian Institute)-Christians in Britain are too soft and should be more outspoken in defence of their beliefs, according to Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury.

Besides advocating a “tougher church”, Lord Carey also called for the immigration system to prioritise immigrants who respect Britain ’s historic Christian values.

Lord Carey made his remarks in an interview for BBC Radio 5 live’s Breakfast programme.

He said: “I think we need a tougher church. We Christians are very often so soft that we allow other people to walk over us and we are not as tough in what we want, in expressing our beliefs, because we do not want to upset other people.

“We have got to be more outspoken.”

“Unless the Christians wake up,” the Cardinal said, “life may be Islamised and Christianity will not have the strength to imprint its character on the life of people, not to say society.”
