    Why would i want to know my MP's religion?
    She could be Atheist for all i care or a Pagan. I'm caring. Do your job.

    Then it is a shame there are more seculars than religious in Parliament.
    Even when a free vote occured on Abortion and Cloning, it was only the catholics who were going nuts and a handful of others. The majority of MP's voted in favour

    393 votes to 71.
    Bring limit down to 16 weeks was defeated by 387 votes to 84.
    A 'cross party' attempt to defeat human-animal cloning was defeated as well by 342 votes to 163.

    Abortion and the other moral topics are a settled issue in UK so little need for religion.

    I will continue to stand up for our ancient society, institutions and traditions against the ravages of secularism and atheism and I make no bones about it, I'm proud of the fact.
    Never over the top.
    Just someone who understands that his loyalty is to his consituents not his religion. If i want him/her to vote in favour of Abortion and the rest of us do, i do not want him/her voting opposite what we want.

    Well even tho i'm religious, i favour secularism and atheism in UK society.

    Indeed.

    Even when a free vote occured on Abortion and Cloning, it was only the catholics who were going nuts and a handful of others. The majority of MP's voted in favour

    393 votes to 71.
    Bring limit down to 16 weeks was defeated by 387 votes to 84.
    A 'cross party' attempt to defeat human-embryo cloning was defeated as well by 342 votes to 163.

    Abortion and the other moral topics are a settled issue in UK so little need for religion.
    Firstly as you say it is mostly Catholics who are most against those things. I think that we need to have far stricter restrictions but I and even most Conservative Anglicans are not completely against abortion as the Catholics are. Human cloning needs to be shut down but the leftists won't allow it at the moment.

    They are not settled issues, the establishment and the media simply treat them as such. If or when there is a conservative upsurge, and the bastards in Brussels don't stick their noses in, you can bet you'll see a change. You should not discount the social conservatism of an important section of the British public despite what the elites and media have been pouring out for decades.

    And to be loyal to England you need to show a measure of respect to our ancient culture, religion and church.


    Well even tho i'm religious, i favour secularism and atheism in UK society.
    Again here you are as a first generation migrant wanting overturn our heritage and church. I find that very rude as I have said before. I would not go to Somalia and preach Christianity.

    Cloning?
    UK leads the way when it comes to restricting. We have our own body that will evaluate and track down every embryo and we know what happens to it from start to finish. Not to mention a cell has to be destroyed in 2 weeks. We have a stem cell bank remember which allows scientists to get hold of stem cell without growing it illegally. We have the best framework to prevent any illegal cloning.

    Cloning and stem cell will never be shut down. What exactly are you going to appeal to when talking to the British public? God doesn't want you to heal people and find cures?

    It is a settled issue. Abortion has been over for years, it only came up once for a review of the law and was not defeated. No matter how much others tried restricting it. The conservatism is amongst the elderly, the younger generation are no way near as conservative.

    Somalia is not my country. But if you wish, you can come Somaliland and preach Christianity. I'll even come with you to hand out Bibles

    Sure you did. You weren't attacking me specifically but you started attacking religion randomly, crudely and arrogantly. Or are you denying I replied to this post of yours:

    If you mean do I vote for or against a candidate because of their religious views then I'd say I'd prefer someone who was a traditionalist Anglican or at least a Christian but it is not the most important thing I look for. So it has an effect but it is far from my overriding concern.

    I thought you were talking cloning humans or something, I didn't read that part well.

    It is a settled issue. Abortion has been over for years, it only came up once for a review of the law and was not defeated. No matter how much others tried restricting it. The conservatism is amongst the elderly, the younger generation are no way near as conservative.
    Because of the media and establishment there is an annoying amount of scumbaggery among the young but as far as i can see it is not anything like as high as you say. In fact I think it is on the upsurge, I know many socially conservative young people. You should not believe your secluded, left-liberal, PC world is what all Britons believe in. Look at the polls in Scotland on section 28 for instance.

    BBC News | SCOTLAND | Poll 'backs' Section 28
    That too.
    Good.

    Somalia is not my country. But if you wish, you can come Somaliland and preach Christianity. I'll even come with you to hand out Bibles
    I would not want too, I have respect for the traditonal belief systems of nations and communities.

    Cloning humans? Hell no.

    Lmao, Guardian reader here. Surprise surprise.
    You'd be surprised when you come London, we are generally quite liberal.
    I know no one who is socially conservative and is not old.
