His speech is pretty good he is hitting all the right notes. He goes into some details about his own family and lack thereof. He mentions that his father was a Muslim who became an atheist and that his people were not particularly practicing Christians.
He notes Tony Blair and his coming to his (Catholic) faith. He talks about his coming to Christianity briefly it is interesting so I’ll comment on it later in its own post.
He asks for prayers for himself and the country.
A good solid speech that hit the right tone.
One small thing that I’ll mention since it will be beaten into the ground; He says that no religion says to kill the innocent. The question is who is considered the innocent? He might want to re-read his Koran on that one. Of course this speech wasn’t the place for that question but there are going to be those who hit on it hard, so I’m saying it now.
