One last bite at this particular cherry for now. Many of you appear shocked at the thought that a Christian and a Conservative could propose that Islam become our state religion. If I thought there were any prospect of Christianity continuing in/returning to its role as our state religion, then I would leap at it. But most of my critics on this point seem to me to assume far too complacently that this is an option. As my original posting pointed out, in this country even for a Christian politician to employ a moral category is to be ruled outwith polite society. Fraser Nelson made the mistake a few months ago of quoting Deuteronomy in an argument about the 50p tax band, to widespread ridicule and the cheap rejection of his elegant point.
