John Sentamu: 'My conscience tells me that I must vote to Remain'

Writing in the Telegraph, Dr John Sentamu explained how he's come to that conclusion.

He said: "My conscience tells me that I must vote to Remain in the European Union.

"The possibility of any kind of organised political life depends on successive generations accepting the responsibilities undertaken before them.

"This applies both to the internal stability of nations, and also to the external stability of relations among them.

"The implication of wanting to decide everything afresh in every generation is universal instability.

"If we are serious about supporting either national or international order, we shall have to be prepared to live up to inherited obligations, even if we may sometimes think that they would have been better not incurred."

While the Church of England has chosen to stay neutral on the issue, a number of bishops have spoken publically about their voting intentions.

Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury has stated he will vote out while Lord Williams his successor has said he will vote in.

Current Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has said his vote will be private.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
