British Prime Minister David Cameron marked the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible with a speech in which he said Britain was a Christian country and "we should not be afraid to say so," Christian Today reports. Cameron said Christianity had made Britain a more tolerant country and provided a moral framework, and praised the King James Bible as one of Britain's greatest achievements. Cameron described himself as a committed but "vaguely practicing" Christian who had doubts, but said he would stand up for the Christian faith. "Let me me clear: I am not in any way saying that to have another faith -- or no faith -- is somehow wrong," he said. "But what I am saying is that the Bible has helped to give Britain a set of values and morals which make Britain what it is today, values and morals we should actively stand up and defend."
