Queen’s former chaplain warns ‘multicultural, multifaith’ King Charles III threatens British monarchy

Queen Elizabeth II’s former chaplain warned that King Charles III’s multi-faith multiculturalism threatened to destroy his own house and end the British monarchy.

“I think if this slow movement towards multiculturalism and multifaith continues, we will lose the monarchy, because at the end of the day, I don’t think it is true to itself,” Gavin Ashenden, who served as the Queen’s chaplain from 2008 to 2017, he told British channel GB News on Sunday.

Ashenden made his comments in response to the king’s first royal Christmas message since taking the throne following his mother’s death in September.

“The problem is, it’s a bit like watching a wonderful ship slowly sink below the waterline, and at some point you want to stop it and make sure it floats,” Ashenden said. “And I don’t think the monarchy can float if it becomes a multi-cultural, multi-religious monarchy.”

Acknowledging that King Charles III had done “exceptionally well” with his first Christmas speech, Ashenden said British subjects had nevertheless witnessed “a very slow and gradual change from being a Christian monarchy to a multi-religious”.

“The problem is that you are either a defender of the faith or you are not,” referring to the oath taken by the British monarch to defend the Protestant religion.

The British monarch, among other duties, is the supreme governor of the Church of England.

“There are many things about Christianity that are directly responsible for the way we live in our culture,” said Ashenden, who warned that Christians in the UK are increasingly marginalized.

Ashenden, who stepped down as chaplain in 2017 after condemning recitations of the Koran during an Epiphany service at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, pointed out how Christianity is increasingly being pushed out of the public square because of its exclusive claims amid a “serious competition for power”.

“So the problem we’re having right now is that Christianity is under assault,” Ashenden said. “Now the question is, what does a Christian king do about it? Does a Christian king save Christianity? Does he become a defender of the faith, which is what his title really is? hand, say, “No, I am . defender of all religions, which means I don’t have to defend Christianity.”
