Baroness Warsi has been subjected to the sneering contempt and patronizing dismissal of various UK atheists for daring to speak the truth about them and their efforts to force a totalitarian secularism on our country.
The British Humanist Association chief executive Andrew Copson dismissed the Baroness’ speech as being ”outdated, unwarranted and divisive”. [Copson proves the Baroness' point about their intolerant dismissal of anyone making the case for religion in public life]
Prof Richard Dawkins, former professor for the public understanding of science at Oxford University, told the BBC News Channel: “She is obviously a person who really wants to push religion. She is not Christian herself but nevertheless she sees religion as a good thing – it doesn’t matter what religion as long as there’s some religion and that’s better than no religion.’ [Actually, Baroness Warsi doesn't believe that just any religion is good for Europe, but as a Muslim she recognizes the importance of Christianity to Europe's identity]
Terry Sanderson wrote on the NSS site:
‘So, who is out of step here? If you read the newspaper commentators it is most definitely the National Secular Society. But if you listen to the people, you’ll find that it is the pious politicians who seem to be threatening us with theocracy. Baroness Warsi led a delegation of senior British Government Ministers to the Vatican to have a 20 minute chat with the Pope. [If Sanderson had bothered to read Baroness Warsi's speech he would have noticed that she goes out of her way to say that she is not advocating a theocracy, but rather an affirmation Europe's Christian heritage and identity that Sanderson is] intolerantly campaigning to destroy.
Protect the Pope comment: Before Christmas PM David Cameron was on the receiving end of Dawkins and co’s sneering contempt for saying the UK was a Christian country, and now Baroness Warsi has earned their cudgel-blunt wit. Together Dawkins, Sanderson and Copson prove the point about sin being mind-numbingly boring.
