Christian teaching is against war, and Britain should heed it

The Queen who is head of a Christian Church, whose fifth commandment thou shalt not kill.

The alleged Christian British government have for centuries ignored the fourth, seventh and tenth commandments in pursuit of empire and oil. So much for their vaunted Christianity.

In her final years on God’s earth – and it is God’s not hers – she should stand up and be counted (as a Christian) and refuse to put her signature on this latest British war mongering furore in and on Syria.

A war cannot commence without that royal signature in the relative safety of Buckingham Palace, well protected from the bombs and bullets. As a result of war the innocent including children and babies will be sent to an early grave.
