Scottish Moslems, Hindus call for more Christianity

From the Scotsman...

HINDU and Muslim leaders are urging the Kirk to boost religious teaching in schools in order to counter the "secular society". ...

The surprising calls come with religious communities preparing to mark Scottish Inter Faith Week from today, in which the links between the country's main faiths will be celebrated. 

Their leaders will present the Scottish Parliament with a framed compilation of quotes from their respective scriptures which support the values engraved on the Scottish Mace. ...

[David Lacy, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland] said pressure to assert more Christianity in Scotland was now coming from other faiths, following a meeting of religious leaders from all faiths earlier this month. 

He said: "This point was being made about the need to counter secular culture. We were being told that we should be calling for religious observance and religious education far more stridently in schools. 

"This is a Christian country, they told us, and others are happy to live within a Christian country."

Christianity as applied to government has consistently demonstrated an over-riding desire to consistently allow freedom of religion. One cannot become a Christian by force, therefore only in a truly free society can Christianity flourish, and this fact apparently has become obvious to these religious leaders in Scotland. The concepts of so-called "Multi-Culturalism" and secularism are exclusive at their core. They do not promote freedom, but bigotry and intolerance. We need more people to recognize that here in the US.

I am absolutely astonished that this would be coming out of Scotland, but extremely pleased.
