Baroness Sayeeda Warsi (first female Muslim in the UK Cabinet) calls for Christians to quit being wimps. Amazing! She asks them to show more pride in their faith and not leave it at the door.
Warsi makes reference to the murder of Shahbaz Bhatti, the only Christian in the Pakistani Cabinet, last March, and calls for more dialog among the religions, and more protection of minority religions in Pakistan and the Middle East.
Says the Baroness:
“We need to create a country in which people can be unashamedly proud of their faith – where they don’t feel that they have to leave religion at the door. That means being proud of Christianity, not downgrading it. It means encouraging people to say that their faith inspires what they do. It means supporting religious charities in delivering public services in schools, hospices and rehabilitation.”
