I am deeply offended by David Cameron’s implication that I don’t subscribe to a moral code

Reading The Guardian I see that prime minister David Cameron has declared himself “evangelical about his Christian faith” and criticised some non-believers for failing to grasp the role that religion can have in “helping people to have a moral code”.

Cameron also wants to see a bigger role for religion in a Christian country (Britain).

As a lifelong Atheist, I find the implication that I do not subscribe to a moral code deeply offensive; a view which I am sure will be shared by all British non-Christians.

Cameron, in common with other so-called “Christian” politicians, fails to realise that Britain is a multi-cultural society.

I trust that in forthcoming elections (both national and local), voters will demonstrate that they will not tolerate such Conservative bigotry.
