This is a comment left at Chicken Yoghurt that sums up nicely my views on the 'godnuts' running this country.
"It worries me deeply that a Christian cohort is running the country. These people are supposed to make the myths, not believe the nonsense.
As Seneca said, 'Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful'.
It worries me when the Home Office is trying to impose a Christian morality on the justice system, when the Minister of Education, a supernumerary of Opus Dei is increasing the number of religious schools, including those that teach Creationism. It worries me that New Labour is promoting deeply religious people to key positions in government, the civil service and quangos."
I also like their riposte to someone who suggests atheism is a religion.
"On the contrary, I have no religion at all. Atheism is not a religion, it is absence of religion. As some wag said "If atheism is a religion, then is my not collecting stamps a hobby?"
