U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron caused controversy last week by calling Britain a "Christian country," but the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Rowan Williams, has a different take on the matter.
Williams told the Sunday Telegraph that Britain is no longer a "nation of believers," and the era of widespread worship is over.
Williams elaborated on his statements by explaining that "the cultural memory is still quite strongly Christian." However, "It's a matter of defining terms. A Christian country as a nation of believers? No. A Christian country in the sense of still being very much saturated by this vision of the world and shaped by it? Yes."
