Not long ago, British Prime Minister http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=2253 broadcast his Ramadan message to Muslims in Britain.
The Prime Minister offered his “sincerest best wishes for the http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=3429."
The Prime Minister said “Muslims make a huge contribution to Britain’s success, to our prosperity, our society, our http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=4166 of Islam not just to Britain, but to the world. Islamic art, science, and philosophy have enriched our lives over many centuries. And finally, Ramadan is also a time to recall the prophet’s message that the best richness is the richness of the soul. This speaks to me, as it speaks to so many others.”
That was British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s message to Muslims in Britain.This past week the Christian world celebrated Christmas, the season when we consider the incarnation of God into human flesh in the person of Jesus Christ. It’s a holy day that British Christians have celebrated for many centuries. I’d like to share with you some thoughts from Prime Minister Brown’s Christmas message to British Christians. But I can’t. Mr. Brown didn’t offer a Christmas message to British Christians. Actually, Mr. Brown’s silence did send a message to British Christians, and his message was “there is http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=5561, and Mohammed is his prophet.” Perhaps he was just following the example of France.
Queen Victoria was once asked by an African prince, “What is the secret of England’s greatness?” Her Majesty picked up a Bible and she said, “This is the secret of England’s greatness.”
We now know why no one any longer refers to Britain as “Great Britain.”
