From the item:

>> [W]e are routinely referred to as "aggressive
>> atheists" as if non-belief itself were an affront.
>> But we are with Voltaire, defending to the death
>> people's right to believe whatever they choose,
>> but fighting to prevent them imposing their creeds
>> on others.

Too damn right. But if the religitards don't catapult the propaganda, they can't rally their fellow religitards into anti-atheist violence.

However, she gets this wrong:

>> Hitler and Stalin were atheists, that's where it
>> leads.

Her wording is poor, almost acceeding to fiction. Hitler was a christian, whether people like it or not. Denial makes them dishonest, it doesn't make them right.

Still, regardless of his faults he was of a finer calibre than criminal filth like you

Imitation is the best form of flattery. When someone wants to be you, then they must hold you in high esteem.

That is a wierd fact considering that Britain does not have a speration of church and state. The archbishops and bishops are a part of the British government, sitting in the House of Lords. The Queen is the head of the Church but they refuse to allow women bishops.
