Do not believe Theresa May’s claim about her religious beliefs. She worships corporate money, not God

Theresa May: She falsely claims to be a Christian but - by the terms of that faith - in fact worships the false god Mammon (money).

Theresa May: She falsely claims to be a Christian but – by the terms of that faith – in fact worships the false god Mammon (money).

It was horrifying to read UK prime minister Theresa May’s claim that she is guided by her belief in God. The only god she has is Mammon – the Biblical false deity associated with wealth.

You cannot serve God and money at the same time, according to the Bible (Matthew 6:24) – but whenever Theresa May’s announced policies clash with the wishes of the wealthy, she changes her mind.

Look at the way she changed her plan to cut childhood obesity after the food manufacturing giants leaned on her to strip away possible impediments to their profits.

Some might say her membership of the Church of England (along with many other Conservatives) is enough to prove her good character. I disagree: The Devil can quote scripture too, as William Shakespeare noted (in The Merchant of Venice. If you want a Biblical reference, try Matthew 4:1-11).

So, when she says she has sleepless nights over Brexit but is convinced her faith in God and moral sense of right and wrong will guide her, should we have faith in Theresa May?


Because her God is money, and she will do whatever she can in the service of those who have it.

By her own actions, this daughter of a priest has scorned her religion, falsely claiming to keep the faith while her actions show that she worships a false deity. This is the sin of idolatry.

Those of sincere faith should encourage her to seek the help of the Church to atone for this sin, in accordance with the rules of the religion she claims to follow.

Until she achieves this, then members of the Church of England should certainly be encouraged to reject this woman, the political party she leads and the government of which she is the head.

Their faith demands it.

    C of E? There’s a church to be proud of being affiliated with, seeing as it came about because a brutal and evil king wanted a divorce!
    Also didn’t IDS claim to be a christian whilst he was committing his crimes against humanity?!!!! And used it to punish the vulnerable of the UK!!

      Don’t blame the church as it is now for its origins, or for those who claim to follow its faith but don’t.

    As far as I can see, all wars and injustices have been due to worshiping either false religion or politicians. Look at the state of the world in general today; religious hatred instead of tolerance, abandonment of little children who have been left without the parents due to wars, total indifference to the suffering of those without sufficient heat, food, accommodation, while promoting benefits for the already rich and self-indulgent, and I could go on for the rest of the day!

    Beware the religious, real or feigned. Tony Blair and Iain Duncan Smith both claimed to be pious and sincere practising Christians. Just saying.

      Oh! And the late Margaret Thatcher was also purportedly also a Christian with a somewhat skewed religious viewpoint in my opinion. For example, according to Thatcher the meaning of the parable of the Samaritan is that unless you become wealthy and comfortably off you won’t have the means to do good if/when you choose to rather than being generous toward and helping others no matter how alien, different or foreign they are, irrespective of race, creed, class or politics, is a good thing to do in itself for the sake of humanity.

      That’s the trouble with religion: It means whatever you want it to mean.

      And if you happen to be delusional or black hearted no matter how religious you pretend to be you will still blunder about doing deluded and hideously unkind things.

        No, religion doesn’t mean whatever you want it to mean, otherwise I would not have written my article challenging Theresa May and using scripture to do it. It means what it says.
        You’re right in your last sentence, though.

    I have never understood why professing a belief in an invisible giant man in the sky is seen as a commendable trait in a political leader. I would much prefer someone whose judgement is not guided by what they think would please an imaginary deity, and whose policy making is not modelled on a book of iron age, middle eastern creation stories. Belief in fantasy creatures should be more a reason to disbar someone from public office, than to appoint them.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      I have never really understood why atheists have to belittle the beliefs of others, mocking them with silly talk about “an invisible giant man in the sky” – which is, of course, not what religious people believe.
      Isn’t it better to think that at least they are making use of a rough approximation of a conscience?
      In Theresa May’s case, she should be challenged because her actions and words create an impression of her religion that is a lie, and she may be giving others an excuse to behave in an entirely inappropriate way.

    may and IDS are not the sort of people i have ever met in my sixty years of going to church thank god and to be frank i very much doubt they DO go to church on a regular basis’ as their line of thought would never be tolerated in a C of E church that’s for sure

    All gods from time immemorial are fantasies created by people for the comfort of people and an attempt to explain the seemingly inexplicable.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      You’re not really getting this, I think.
      The point is, by her own standards, Theresa May is a worshipper of a false god. Her fellows in the Church of England should shun her until she repents.

    Religion and politics don’t mix, and anyone who is really trying to live out their christian faith through their politics needs to be very, very careful. If you are a christian believer you live by the tenet that the commandment of Jesus was to “Love one another.” If you can’t do that, and if you can’t at least try to foster a community that also tries to do that, then you have no business preaching your faith through your job. Atheists will rightly call you a hypocrite and other christians will despair of you.
    We all fall short and we all make mistakes, but attempting to justify political action by religion is one of the biggest mistakes of all.

    Religious discussions are always very confusing and never lead anywhere. Yeshua, (no-one knows his real name for sure) was a Buddhist preacher teaching how to live one’s life free from pain and misery. It’s that simple.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      Yes indeed, it’s probably the most appropriate passage.
      I wonder how many VP readers are looking up that passage now?

    pillar of salt more to the likes with these demons needing to pinch the peasants crumbs of their tables dont look to the pope for help he was put in his p-lace by the yanks more worried about his churches wealth than his lambs left to the wolves even our bishops dont say much only rattle their crooks when the demons say families should only be 2 children families yes our churches are more worried about them selves when the wolves attack their flocks oh Christians look to the salvation army who ask kindly for that 19 pounds to feed their flock nay look at these demons who take in a slave fot the blood monies for taking them to stack their shelves christian hay nay more like the demons jeff3

    Bring back the ancient polytheistic religions I say. Firstly, because I would prefer to worship a goddess than a god (or God!) and secondly because practitioners of the old ways knew how to have a good time and to party! Aphrodite, Bacchus and Eros – welcome back!
