Rabbi Sacks Attacking PM, Multiculturalism

Britain’s chief rabbi, Lord Sacks, is blaming British Prime Minister David Cameron for failing to do enough to boost marriages in the UK, and saying multiculturalism in Britain has “had its day,” The Times reported.

Rabbi Sacks said Cameron should recognize marriage in the tax system and do more to support stay at home mothers.

“I think the government has not done enough,” he said. “Although I don’t take a political stance … I don’t think the government has done enough at all.”

Rabbi Sacks, who retires next month after 22 years, said the estimated £9 billion-a-year cost of family breakdown and “non-marriage” meant the state has a direct interest in promoting marriage.

Rabbi Sacks also said multiculturalism in Britain had led to “segregation and inward-looking communities.”

Comparing it to a hotel where “nobody is at home,” he said: “It doesn’t belong to anyone, we’ve each got our own room and so long as we don’t disturb the neighbors we can do whatever we like.”

  1. Anthony Kent says:

    Rabbi Sacks is getting a lot of flack from the champagne lefties in the UK, so he is definitely talking a lot of sense.

  2. Eamonn Riley says:

    When the Rabbi says that "[The government] should certainly recognise marriage in the tax system, it should certainly give more support to mothers who stay at home or for childcare provision," he shows that he is a patriarchial sexist. Does he know that some men stay at home to look after children? He seems to be out of touch with today's world, and hardly qualifies to give advice to it.
