    It would be nice if the United states was like this

    From guardian.co.uk:

    This Christmas, for perhaps the first time ever, Britain is a majority non-religious nation

    Editorial
    The Guardian, Friday 24 December 2010
    Article history
    Every year, researchers from the British Social Attitudes survey ask a representative sample of British people whether they regard themselves as belonging to any particular religion and, if so, to which one? When the survey first asked these questions in 1985, 63% of the respondents answered that they were Christians, compared with 34% who said they had no religion (the rest belonged to non-Christian religions).
    Today, a quarter of a century on, there has been a steady and remarkable turnaround. In the latest 2010 BSA report, published earlier this month, only 42% said they were Christians while 51% now say they have no religion. Admittedly, some other surveys including the last census have produced different findings on these issues, usually to the advantage of the religious option. There is also a margin of error in all such exercises. All the same, and particularly since the trends in opinion over time seem well set, it is hard not to feel that this latest finding marks a cultural watershed.
    This Christmas, for perhaps the first time ever, Britain is a majority non-religious nation. Most of us have probably seen this moment coming, but it is a substantial event nonetheless. It is undoubtedly a development that would have astonished our ancestors who built a Britain on the basis that we were and would remain a predominantly Protestant people. The victory of secularism would have flabbergasted them almost as much as the pope appearing on the BBC with his Thought for the Day.

    A survey - not a census - and I am supposed to believe it is fact.

    "Good one, dumbmarine!"

    Good-bye British Protestants, hello British Muslims:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ve-period.html

    'Christmas is evil': Muslim group launches poster campaign against festive period

    By Daily Mail Reporter

    Fanatics from a banned Islamic hate group have launched a nationwide poster campaign denouncing Christmas as evil.

    Organisers plan to put up thousands of placards around the UK claiming the season of goodwill is responsible for rape, teenage pregnancies, abortion, promiscuity, crime and paedophilia.

    They hope the campaign will help 'destroy Christmas' in this country and lead to Britons converting to Islam instead.

    Labour MP and anti racist campaigner Jim Fitzpatrick branded the posters 'extremely offensive' and demanded they were immediately ripped down.

    The placards, which have already appeared in parts of London, feature an apparently festive scene with an image of the Star of Bethlehem over a Christmas tree.

    But under a banner announcing 'the evils of Christmas' it features a message mocking the song the 12 Days of Christmas.

    It reads: 'On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me an STD (sexually transmitted disease).

    'On the second day debt, on the third rape, the fourth teenage pregnancies and then there was abortion.'

    According to the posters, Christmas is also to responsible for paganism, domestic violence, homelessness, vandalism, alcohol and drugs.

    Another offence of Christmas, it proclaims, is 'claiming God has a son'.

    The bottom of the poster declares: 'In Islam we are protected from all of these evils. We have marriage, family, honour, dignity, security, rights for man, woman and child.'

    The campaign's organiser is 27-year-old Abu Rumaysah, who once called for Sharia Law in Britain at a press conference held by hate preacher leader Anjem Choudary, the leader of militant group Islam4UK.

    Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson banned Islam4UK group earlier this year, making it a criminal offence to be a member, after it threatened to protest at Wootton Bassett, the town where Britain honours its war dead.

    Mr Rumaysah told the Mail that he was unconcerned about offending Christians.

    He said: 'Christmas is a lie and as Muslims it is our duty to attack it.

    'But our main attack is on the fruits of Christmas, things like alcohol abuse and promiscuity that increase during Christmas and all the other evils these lead to such as abortion, domestic violence and crime.

    'We hope that out campaign will make people realise that Islam is the only way to avoid this and convert.'

    Mr Rumaysah, who said his campaign was not linked to any group, boasted that the posters would be put up in cities around the country, including London, Birmingham and Cardiff.

    The campaign was highlighted by volunteers from a charity which distributes food and presents to pensioners and the lonely at Christmas.

    Sister Christine Frost, founder of the East London Neighbours in Poplar charity, said: 'The more posters I saw, the more angry I got.

    'Someone is stirring hatred which leaves the road open to revenge attacks or petrol bombs through letter-boxes.

    'I told the Mayor we are all scared.

    'If we said such things about Muslims, we'd all be hanging from lamp-posts.

    'The posters appear to be professionally printed'.

    Poplar and Limehouse MP Mr Fitzpatrick said: 'These posters are extremely offensive and have upset a lot of people - that's why we jumped on it and asked the council to remove them.

    'Sister Christine is rooted in the community and doesn't take offence lightly.

    'But these hate posters really upset her. Christmas is close to her belief.'

    A Met Police spokesman said they had received complaints and were investigating.

    He said: 'We are investigating allegations of religious hate crime in Tower Hamlets following complaints about posters displayed in and around the Mile End area.'

    Tower Hamlets mayor Lutfur Rahman said the posters had 'upset and antagonised many residents'.

    He added: 'The messages on these posters are offensive and do not reflect the views of the Council or the vast majority of residents.'

    LOL, good luck with that...

    I guess the only problem you have with Hitler is that he was just confused about whom to kill.

    No need to kill them.

    Just give them large doses of high-grade acid in their water and they'll be crawling around on their hands & knees.

    Then they die of starvation.

    Kudos, very creative. You must be related to Dr. Mengele. He would be so proud.

    Killers are killers irrespective of their religion, faith, nationality etc. You cannot cite one post where I defended Bin Laden, Hamas or any other terrorist. To the contrary I believe in Israel's right to exist and defend itself from aggression, I also believe that terrorists like Bin Laden should be hunted down like dogs.

    What I don't get is making idiotic inflamatory remarks that do not serve anyone but the crazies. You can try to "fix" my posts as much as you like but the fact remains that I am not amongst the people advocating the murder of close to a billion people whether they are gulity or innocent, adult or a kid, men or woman. All you have to be is born to a muslim family in order to qualify.



    And isn't there some kind of law in the states against someone advocating the murder of a US Congressman? Assuming there is I'd venture to guess that it does not exclude muslim representatives.

    Abolishing religion to put a "cult of personality" in it's place is NOT atheism. These dictators abolished religion because it was a rival power source. Secular fanaticism is a religion unto itself.

    Besides, religious critique of bloodthirsty regimes is quite hilarious considering their own holy book lays out god's "plan" to kill every living thing on earth who doesn't go to his particular brand of church....and in doing so will commit mass murder on a scale that would make every totalitarian regime in hostory look like Mr/ f*cking Rodgers.

    Don't believe me? Read the bible someday.
