I am a Christian. I have read The Bible in full, and I try to live my life in accordance with what it teaches. What I do not do is distort the teachings of the Good Book to suit my own political leanings. There are however many people in Britain today who are happy to do just that. They are to be found in the mainstream political parties and also – I regret to say – in the major church denominations, and in some cases even at the highest level.
