Lord Carey: Christianity being ‘airbrushed’ from society as Christmas is ‘rebranded’


Perhaps Christmas is imply returning to its pagan roots, from which its Christianised in a more Christian era?
Britain’s Christian culture is under attack as faith is “airbrushed” from society, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, has warned.
Tim Ross reports in Telegraph:
Even Christmas is being “re-branded” as a secular festival because councils, politicians and businesses are “ashamed” of its true religious meaning, he said.
Lord Carey’s remarks came as he launched a national campaign to promote the right of Christians to express their beliefs in public and at work.
In a new leaflet to be distributed to thousands of homes across the country, the former Archbishop said the “rich legacy” of Christianity in Britain was “under attack”.
“In spite of having contributed so much to our civilization and providing its foundation, the Christian faith is in danger of being stealthily and subtly brushed aside,” he said.
Mounting evidence of the trend included teachers and council employees who have been suspended for offering to “say a prayer” for people in difficulties, a nurse who was banned from wearing a cross, and a British Airways worker told to remove her crucifix.
