Sitting PM David Cameron’s Party Wins British Elections

1 Timothy 2:1-2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way

David Cameron, the British Prime Minister who hasn’t been shy about discussing his Christian faith, looks to be on track for another term as PM after Thursday’s British elections.

Cameron’s Conservative Party is on pace to win 331 seats in the next Parliament according to the BBC.  The victory is viewed as a massive surprise on par with Benjamin Netanyahu’s big win in Israel.  In both cases, the media predicted big losses for the conservative party with big gains for liberal parties.

The leaders of the liberal parties such as Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg said they would be stepping down to allow for new leadership for their parties.

Cameron has been criticized by anti-religion groups and liberal parties for his open Christianity.

“People who advocate some sort of secular neutrality fail to grasp the consequences of that neutrality, or the role that faith can play in helping people to have a moral code,” Cameron said to the Church Times.

“I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, 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.”

Cameron said he wants to bring the nation together.

“I want to bring our country together, our United Kingdom together, not least by implementing as fast as we can the devolution that we rightly promised and came together with other parties to agree both for Wales and for Scotland,” the British PM added.

“In short, I want my party, and I hope a government I would like to lead, to reclaim a mantle that we should never have lost – the mantle of One Nation, One United Kingdom. That is how I will govern if I am fortunate enough to form a government in the coming days.”
