Do I smell a hypocrite?

In a recent meeting with church leaders our own glorious political leader, David Cameron, welcomed a "Christian fightback" against what he characterised as "secularism", you know, those nasty people who want equal rights and representation for everyone regardless of faith or lack of it. Quite remarkably he praised this action saying,

“I think there’s something of a fightback going on, and we should welcome that. The values of the Bible, the values of Christianity are the values that we need.”

Like the true chamaeleonidae he seems to be he went on to say that he hoped the religious lobby would not fall out with him over the sanctioning of gay marriage - clearly Mr Cameron isn't saying that we need all the values in the bible, just the ones he agrees with at the moment; one wonders how Mr Cameron decides which values to adopt and which to ignore, perhaps he has access to a morality the rest of us don't, in fact I'm sure of it.

I hope Mr Cameron realises the shear number of people that he's disenfranchising by aligning himself to the superstitious community in such a binary way like this, it's a show-stopping issue for many people in this country including myself.
