Declaratia Primului Ministru UK  David Cameron: Noi suntem o tara crestina.

Trad. Agnus dei Sursa: Declaratia Video

Invierea Domnului (Pastele), este un timp pentru crestini in care sa sarbatoreasca triumful ultim al vietii asupra mortii si invirea lui Isus. Si pentru noi toti este un timp in care sa reflectam rolul care-l joaca crestinismul in viata noastra nationala. Biserica nu este doar o colectie de cladiri frumoase vechi, ci este o forta activa vie care face lucrari minunate peste intreaga noastra tara. Cand oamenii raman fara adapost, biserica este acolo cu mancare calda si locuri de cazare, cand oamenii sunt dependenti de felurite patimi sau in datorii, cand oamenii sufera sau sunt indurerati, biserica este acolo. Stiu, din cele mai dificile timpuri din propria mea viata, ca bunatatea bisericii poate fi o confortare imensa. Peste tot in Britania, crestinii nu numai vorbesc doar, sa-ti iubesti pe aproapele tau, ci ii gasesti mergand in scoli religioase, in inchisori, in grupurile comunitatii. Si datorita tuturor acestor motive, ar trebui sa ne simtim mandri sa spunem ca: ,,Aceasta este o tara crestina.”

Da, suntem o natiune care imbratiseaza, primeste si accepta toate credintele si necredintele, dar noi totusi suntem o tara crestina. De aceea guvernul pe care eu il conduc, a facut cateva lucruri importante, de la investirea a zeci de milioane de lire sterline pentru repararea bisericilor si catedralelor, la trecand o lege care sa reafirme dreptul la rugaciune a consiliilor de orase, Si, ca tara crestina, responsabilitatea noastra nu se opreste acolo, noi avem de asemenea datoria sa vorbim deschis despre persecutia crestinilor din jurul lumii. Este cu adevarat socant ca in 2015 exista  inca crestini care sunt torturati si chiar omorati din cauza credintei lor, de la  Egipt la Nigeria, Libia la Coreea de Nord. Peste tot in Orientul Mijlociu, crestinii au fost alungati din casele lor, fortati sa fuga din sat in sat. Multi dintre ei au fost fortati sa renunte la credinta lor sau omorati cu brutalitate. Tuturor celor crestini curajosi din Irak sau Siria care-si practica credinta sau dau adapost altora, noi trebuie sa le zicem ca „suntem alaturi de voi.” Acest guvern a pus aceste cuvinte in actiune, prin faptul ca ei primesc ajutor umanitar sau primesc fonduri de reconciliere la nivel local, in Irak.

Si in lunile care urmeaza, noi trebuie sa vorbim ca o singura voce pentru libertatea de credinta. Pentru acest Paste, ar trebui sa pastram in gandurile noastre pe toti acei crestini care se confrunta cu persecuti in strainatate si sa dam multumiri pentru toti crestinii care fac o diferenta reala, aici acasa. Pe care nota, as vrea sa va urez voua si familiilor voastre, un Paste foarte fericit!

Richard Dawkins: I can’t be sure God does not exist (via) The Telegraph (UK)

Richard Dawkins & Rowan Williams (Archbishop of Canterbury)

One perplexing thing I noticed in this discussion is that the Archbishop of Canterbury (who speaks on behalf of Anglicans as the Pope speaks on behalf of Catholics worldwide) does not believe in literal Creation or a historical Adam. He actually believes that the writers of the Bible did not know physics and so they wrote in their own understanding, yet even more troubling is the fact that he believes that „human beings had evolved from non-human ancestors but were nevertheless “in the image of God”. Dawkins pointed out to Archbishop Rowan that the Pope does take a literal understanding of Creation. Given the relationship between a literal belief in an Adam and Eve which affects the way one looks at the entire Bible, is it a wonder that the United Kingdom  slips into secularism more and more?

The video has now been posted here on Youtube:

Story by By , Religious Affairs Editor from the UK’s Telegraph Newspaper. Read entire story here.

He is regarded as the most famous atheist in the world but last night Professor Richard Dawkins admitted he could not be sure that God does not exist.

He told the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, that he preferred to call himself an agnostic rather than an atheist.

The two men were taking part in a public “dialogue” at Oxford University at the end of a week which has seen bitter debate about the role of religion in public life in Britain.

For an hour and 20 minutes the two men politely discussed „The nature of human beings and the question of their ultimate origin” touching on the meaning of consciousness, the evolution of human language – and Dr Williams’s beard.

For much of the discussion the Archbishop sat quietly listening to Prof Dawkins’s explanations of human evolution.

At one point he told the professor that he was “inspired” by “elegance” of the professor’s explanation for the origins of life – and agreed with much of it.

Prof Dawkins told him: “What I can’t understand is why you can’t see the extraordinary beauty of the idea that life started from nothing – that is such a staggering, elegant, beautiful thing, why would you want to clutter it up with something so messy as a God?”

Dr Williams replied that he “entirely agreed” with the “beauty” of Prof Dawkins’s argument but added: “I’m not talking about God as an extra who you shoehorn on to that.”

There was surprise when Prof Dawkins acknowledged that he was less than 100 per cent certain of his conviction that there is no creator.

The philosopher Sir Anthony Kenny, who chaired the discussion, interjected: “Why don’t you call yourself an agnostic?” Prof Dawkins answered that he did.

An incredulous Sir Anthony replied: “You are described as the world’s most famous atheist.”

Prof Dawkins said that he was “6.9 out of seven” sure of his beliefs.

“I think the probability of a supernatural creator existing is very very low,” he added.

He also said that he believed it was highly likely that there was life on other planets.
