Britain is regarded highly, by many nations, even though also loathed by others for having been a colonizing power. The hatred of Britain only serves to confirm the consideration of British superiority by those grumbling Africans. The displayed emotional hatred, by the so-called revolutionaries, is generally hypocritical. A typical example is that of the late former Zimbabwean President Mugabe.
He emotionally displayed British hatred but committed himself to observing everything English, during his reign. His ignorant supporters became extremely entertained by that fallacy, without checking the man’s true characteristics. He loved his English language, but more so, everything, traditionally, English.
To the informed, his rants against the former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, were not genuine but revealed his secret love for Britain. This is like a jilted girlfriend, badmouthing a former boyfriend. The uninformed outsiders would assume the hatred to be genuine, but only justifying the bitterness of being rejected by someone, truly loved.
The British monarch has traditionally, endured as a governing system that has evolved over many years, as a paganistic evolution. Britain is regarded as a Christian nation, but in name only. Adherence to tradition is a form of being pagan. Christianity implies a commitment to Christ’s teachings. Many nations identify themselves as Christian, when, actually, rooted in paganism.
But you say, ‘If anyone tells his father or his mother, “What you would have gained from me is given to God,” he need not honour his father.’ So for the sake of your tradition you have made void the word of God. You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: “‘This people honours me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men’” (Matthew 15:5-9 NIV).
There is nothing Christian about the English monarchy. The Church of England traditionally officiating in the coronation of the British monarchy has got nothing to do with Christianity. Such tradition can be fascinating, like anything in this world, but true Christians cannot be diverted by sideshows.
Britain is one of the few countries practising monarchial traditions, throughout the world. Those of the current generations are simply amused, if not mystified by such conservative traditions. They observe a powerful monarchy but are unaware of the origin of such a phenomenon.
