Cameron: Onwards Christians, soldiers

All Prime Minister David Cameron wants for Christmas is to be loved by his core constituents, so he’s decided to big up his previously ambivalent Christian faith, and mix it in with cheerleading for Our Boys, and damn the theological consequences! In his Christmas message, Cameron told Tory voters:

The Gospel of John tells us that [Jesus] was life, and that his life was the light of all mankind, and that he came with grace, truth and love. Indeed, God’s word reminds us that Jesus was the Prince of Peace. With that in mind, I would like to pay particular tribute to our brave servicemen and women who are overseas helping bring safety and security to all of us at home.

‘With that in mind’..? Sorry, what? Which exact argument has ‘Jesus’ as a premise, and ‘war in Aghanistan’ as its conclusion?

Clearly Dave was channeling one of Jesus’s most famous sayings: ‘when you are slapped on the cheek, you will realise that you’re an arse.’

A belated Merry Christmas, dear Headline Superheroes readers.

  1. Yes! I remember reading and thinking “what a garbled load of nonsense”, going from John to Isaiah in itself was a non-sequitur. Have a read of Isaiah 9, I don’t think the author was quite envisaging our presence in Afghanistan as the blueprint for the Messiah’s reign. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+9&version=NIVUK
