Remain Takes Project Fear to Church

FFL Euro

The Remain campaign are coordinating another letter to be published in a newspaper over the weekend, this time from religious leaders. BSE sent the text of the letter to Faiths Forum, asking them to get the signatures. Faiths Forum’s email to religious leaders openly admits disguising that it is part of the official Remain campaign. The subject line rather gives it away…

Subject: Britain Strong In Europe Campaign

I received this email yesterday, and have been requested to circulate to faith leaders.

They are coordinating a letter from religious and belief leaders pressing people to think very carefully before voting to leave the European Union. It reiterates the point so eloquently made in a different context by Pope Francis that faith should be about building bridges not erecting barriers.  

It says that so many of the issues about which people of faith care so passionately – from alleviating poverty to tackling climate change – depend on strong international institutions.  It stops short of formally endorsing the remain campaign so as to avoid being overtly political. However, it would be seen as support from the signatories for Britain to remain in the EU, which is how we would present it.

They should listen to Justin Welby: “You can’t say ‘God says you must vote this way or that way’”…

Quote of the Day

Noel Gallagher on Brexit:

“In England, the Brexit thing, it’s like, I can’t believe there’s so much noise about it… It was put to the people as a vote, the people voted. That’s democracy. F***ing get over it.”
