Q1.  What does it mean to be a Christian?

A2:  One must absolutely believe in the Athanasian or Nicene creed, stated in the Book of Common Prayer at http://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-worship/worship/book-of-common-prayer/the-creed-of-s-athanasius.aspx

So are we forbidden by the Catholick Religion: to say there be three Gods, or three Lords.
The Father is made of none: neither created, nor begotten.

The Son is of the Father alone: not made, nor created, but begotten.

The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son: neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.

So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons: one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.

And in this Trinity none is afore, or after other: none is greater, or less than another;
But the whole three Persons are co-eternal together: and co-equal.

So that in all things, as is aforesaid: the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshipped.

He therefore that will be saved: must thus think of the Trinity.

Furthermore it is necessary to everlasting salvation: that he also believe rightly the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For the right Faith is that we believe and confess: that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man;

God, of the Substance of the Father, begotten before the worlds: and Man, of the Substance of his Mother, born in the world;

Perfect God, and Perfect Man: of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting;

Equal to the Father, as touching his Godhead: and inferior to the Father, as touching his Manhood.

Who although he be God and Man: yet he is not two, but one Christ;

One, not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh: but by taking of the Manhood into God;
One altogether, not by confusion of Substance: but by unity of Person.

For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man: so God and Man is one Christ.

Who suffered for our salvation: descended into hell, rose again the third day from the dead.

He ascended into heaven, he sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Almighty: from whence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

At whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies: and shall give account for their own works.

And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting: and they that have done evil into everlasting fire.

This is the Catholick Faith: which except a man believe faithfully, he cannot be saved.
This is the doctrine of the Trinity, which is a condition of being a Christian.  If you do good works and led a good life but don't believe in this mumbo jumbo, you shall not be saved, and will go to hell.

Q2:  What is the main difference between Muslims and Jews and Christians?

A3:  The Jews and Muslims deny the Trinity.  The Spanish Inquisition was all about Christians torturing Muslims and Jews for not believing in the Trinity.  Even the ones who converted to Christianity were still tortured because it was felt that they did not really really believe in this mumbo-jumbo.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Inquisition

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctrine_of_the_Trinity_Act_1813 It only became OK to deny the Trinity in 1813.  Before that denying the Trinity would cause you your job.

Q3:  How many people in this country who call themselves Christians actually believe in the Trinity or even know that they have to believe in this mumbo-jumbo?

A3:  We will only know after the Church of England conducted a YouGov poll. The number is very likely to be minuscule.  Does the Archbishop of Canterbury himself really believe all this mumbo-jumbo and hocus-pocus? Does the Pope himself?

Q4:  How Christian is gay marriage?

A4:  It is neither Jewish nor Christian nor Muslim.  The Bible and Koran forbid homosexuality. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bible_and_homosexuality

Both the Bible and Koran forbid usury, but that is in fact what the City of London is in the business of doing.

Q5:  How Christian is usury?

A5:  Only Jews are allows to practise usury and only against gentiles.

Exodus 22:24 (25)—If thou lend money to any of My people, even to the poor with thee, thou shalt not be to him as a creditor; neither shall ye lay upon him interest.

Leviticus 25:36— Take thou no interest of him or increase; but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

Leviticus 25:37— Thou shalt not give him thy money upon interest, nor give him thy victuals for increase.

Deuteronomy 23:20 (19)—Thou shalt not lend upon interest to thy brother: interest of money, interest of victuals, interest of any thing that is lent upon interest.

Deuteronomy 23:21 (20)—Unto a foreigner thou mayest lend upon interest; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon interest; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou puttest thy hand unto, in the land whither thou goest in to possess it.

Ezekiel 18:17—that hath withdrawn his hand from the poor, that hath not received interest nor increase, hath executed Mine ordinances, hath walked in My statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.

Psalm 15:5—He that putteth not out his money on interest, nor taketh a bribe against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

"Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury." —Matthew 25:27

"Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.." —Matthew 25:27

"…Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow. Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?" —Luke 19:22-23
"Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." —Matthew 5:42

"And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." —Luke 6:34-35
"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” —Luke 6:38

Those who charge usury are in the same position as those controlled by the devil's influence. This is because they claim that usury is the same as commerce. However, God permits commerce, and prohibits usury. Thus, whoever heeds this commandment from his Lord, and refrains from usury, he may keep his past earnings, and his judgment rests with God. As for those who persist in usury, they incur Hell, wherein they abide forever (Al-Baqarah 2:275)

God condemns usury, and blesses charities. God dislikes every disbeliever, guilty. Those who believe and do good works and establish worship and pay the poor-due, their reward is with their Lord and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. O you who believe, you shall observe God and refrain from all kinds of usury, if you are believers. If you do not, then expect a war from God and His messenger. But if you repent, you may keep your capitals, without inflicting injustice, or incurring injustice. If the debtor is unable to pay, wait for a better time. If you give up the loan as a charity, it would be better for you, if you only knew. (Al-Baqarah 2:276-280)

O you who believe, you shall not take usury, compounded over and over. Observe God, that you may succeed. (Al-'Imran 3:130)

And for practicing usury, which was forbidden, and for consuming the people's money illicitly. We have prepared for the disbelievers among them painful retribution. (Al-Nisa 4:161)

The usury that is practiced to increase some people's wealth, does not gain anything at God. But if people give to charity, seeking God's pleasure, these are the ones who receive their reward many fold. (Ar-Rum 30:39) 

Are the people claiming that this country is Christian even Christian?

Have they been asked what they think being a Christian means?

Do they even know?

Do Jack Straw and David Cameron believe in the doctrine of the Trinity?

That a Prime Minister who calls himself a Conservative and a Christian who inflicts gay marriage on the British and gets away with it, is the ultimate test of how Christian a country is.

Britain is as Christian as a skeleton used to be human.

Britain is as Christian as a man wanting a sex change says he is deep down always been a woman.

That is how Christian Britain is.

Why is anyone even surprised that Muslims want nothing to do with this kind of "Christianity"?

Are Jack Straw and David Cameron confusing Christianity with PC Libtardism, like the people who murder African Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa?  http://www.lbc.co.uk/archbishop-gay-marriage-could-mean-murder-of-african-christians-88469

The Archbishop of Canterbury said that he had been warned while on his visit to South Sudan that the Church of England accepting gay marriage could lead to some communities believing having Christians among them could make them gay and reacting by murdering the Christians. 

"The mass grave had 369 bodies in it and I was standing with the relatives. That burns itself into your soul, as does the suffering of gay people in this country."

I think being a Christian country is the direct opposite of being a politically correct country, which Britain is.
