New immigrants coming to Britain should have an understanding of the country's Christian heritage, a former Archbishop of Canterbury said today.
Lord Carey is part of an alliance of leading public figures demanding immigration to be urgently curbed to stop the population hitting 70million and causing ‘serious harm’ to society.
Lord Carey stressed today that he was not calling for a ban on non-Christian immigrants settling in Britain, but warned that if concerns about the level and nature of immigration were not addressed, it simply would play into the hands of the far right British National Party.
'What I think we must call for is an understanding on the part of those who come into our country that they are coming into one which values parliamentary democracy, which is built upon our Christian heritage,' he said.
'They have got to understand our commitment to the English language and espouse it, and they must understand our history.'
For once we find a Religious Leader talking sense. Nobody, well apart from the NUTJOBS in the BNP want to stop all immigration, but immigrants must understand that while we tolerate MULTI-NATIONALISM we cannot any longer tolerate MULTI-CULTURISM. Immigrants who wish to come to this country and settle must be prepared to adhere to the HOST CULTURE of the country and accept our morals, laws, history and customs otherwise the far right will have the opportunity to exploit the fractures in our society.
