PM David Cameron : UK is a Christian country

Britain's PM David Cameron has reportedly said his country should not be apologetic in defining itself as a "'Christian country'". As expected, there are many openly dissenting views among his fellow countrymen. English historian Edward Gibbon's The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire has many abridged editions, including the most conscise one published by Penguin in the five-part Great Ideas Series. Whether Jesus' messages and teachings are in sync with the dynamic of the capitalist modes of production and circulation is also a subject worth deeper thinking from all schools, including Liberation Theology. To be fair, PM Cameron''s consistent concern over moral collapse and social decay is genuine, and the issues he has raised merit attention.
