Christianity heads in the UK condemned “violence in the name of God”


“To all who have been or are being dehumanised by the tyranny and cruelty of a Herod or an Isis, a Herod of today, God’s judgment comes as good news, because it promises justice.” At the same time, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, said that the coming of Jesus brings a testing of people’s hearts: “this means that, in a life shaped by faith in God, there is absolutely no room at all for gratuitous violence.(…) It is therefore clear that any claim that faith in God supports or justifies such violence is abhorrent. It is a corruption of true faith.” The common idea promoted all around the country in the UK by Christian heads now was to not accept the violence in the name of God in the actual world.
