British Prime Minister David Cameron "Woo's" Christians saying He's an "Evangelical"

Teresa Neumann : Apr 17, 2014  Rowena Mason – The Guardian

Cameron's comments come after Independent leader Nigel Farage said British politics need "a more muscular defense of our Judeo-Christian heritage."

Cameron(United Kingdom)—In a concerted effort to "woo back" Christians upset about his endorsement of gay marriage, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has declared himself an evangelical who wants to see a bigger role for religion in Britain, calling the nation a Christian country and urging other Christians to be more confident in spreading their beliefs.

His comments came after politician Nigel Farage of the Independent Party accused British politics of needing "a more muscular defense of our Judeo-Christian heritage."

"I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country," said Cameron, "more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organizations, and frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people's lives."

A report in The Guardian noted that politicians mentioning their faith is not as common in the UK as it is in America, but the issue of gay marriage seems to be changing that, with British political leaders taking pains to appeal to their Bible-believing constituents.
