Thread Name: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
Subject: RE: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
The claim that Britain is a Christian country is not based on the idea that people are Christians but upon the fact that the social and moral principles upon which British society is based, drew upon primarily Christian traditions. Obviously these have evolved over time, it could be argued that the secular, liberal tradition that has its roots in the Enlightenment has drawn society away from its Christian roots although some basic values remain.
