Easter is a celebration of the Christian foundation, he said, but it is not an excuse for clergyman to criticize on passing political opinions nor is it a time when political sentiments should be prioritized.
"All of our Christian faith and the whole of Christian civilisation depends on this Day," he said.
"[Political] choices ought not to concern us on this greatest day in the Christian Calendar," he further added.
This Easter has come at a time of much political strife, he said, noting that English society has seen a deterioration in people's civility toward those who hold opposing beliefs. As tolerance has declined so has the culture's comprehension of Easter and truth, he said.
"A deepening bitterness and intolerance in British society must surely be a concern for us all. It might even mark a change in our national character as disagreement and difference now too often leads to anger; enmity; no-platforming; and even threats of violence and death to those in public life."
"We might trace this breakdown in our civility and gentle tolerance to the loss of the greater horizons which Easter celebrates. In many western societies, we see a descent into an irrationalism in which there is only 'my truth' and 'your truth,' with no hope of basing our lives and society on what is enduringly and always true. Yet, passing questions of public policy must always be seen from the perspective of what is lasting."
He pointed to the 2010 visit of Benedict XVI to England, in which the then-pope "observed that if the only thing underpinning our democracy is an ever-changing social consensus, then the real challenge to democracy and social cohesion lies in our losing hold of the very truths which made our civilisation and society possible."
