Not precious but true, it has a very strong Christian heritage and that heritage is at least partly responsible to a lot of the atrocities committed in Englandís name over the centuries.<quoted text>
Your precious England has a Christian heritage. A STRONG Christian heritage.
You're saying that England is still intolerant.
Part of the reason why that heritage is in serious decline.
You will also note the UK holds some responsibility for the popularity of christianity in the US. Early settlers left the UK and sailed to the US to avoid the religious tolerance that was beginning to permeate society here. The Puritan movement is a perfect example.
More recently, in just 10 years those claiming christianity in the UK has declined from 71.7% to 59.4% with between 9% to 22%(depending on the poll you choose) claiming belief in god with just 2.5% attending church regularly. Those being mostly the elderly with few or no young blood to fill the gaps.
It is estimated that christianity will be a minority faith within 30 years and close to extinction within 50.
Not only in the UK but in most of Europe religion has lost its hold on the population and is no longer a threat.
As for intolerant, pretty much, if that intolerance includes eastern European immigrants and Syrian asylum seekers, stealing our road sweeping and toilet cleaning jobs (there is a bit of sarcasm there which you may even be able to understand)
Apart from what is left of the conservative church and the few far right wing hard liners (see pervious sentence) than itís pretty tolerant.
Perhaps you are christian who revels in displaying his intolerance but honey, if you want to verbally abuse me then I claim my right to respond in kind. It seems so strange that you have not guessed this basic premise yet.
