Biblical zeal is a ruse

Every copy of Gove’s specially printed Bible has “presented by the secretary of state for education” written on it

Michael Gove’s biblical zeal is a ruse

Michael Gove’s scheme to send a special edition of the King James Bible to every state school in the country has been saved. The plan, which was announced last year, was reported to have run into difficulties when it was decided that it wouldn’t be appropriate for taxpayers to pay for it. Instead the bill is to be footed by leading Tory donors. That’s not to say that they’re not also taxpayers. I’m sure they are. To some extent.

It’s going to cost £370,000, which is a lot of money if you’re a normal human. It’s not quite so much if you’re a leading Tory donor. That’s not to say that they’re not also normal humans. I’m sure they are. To some extent.

Opinion:

Neither tax payers, nor Tory donors, nor indeed humans should pay for this. This is the church’s responsibility, and should be nothing to do with the government.

£370,000 is purely to buy votes from the religiously impaired, who can’t tell that they are being conned.

Do we pray to the same God?

Reading on BBC News

“But we are warriors in facing adversity and with faith in God, in Christ the Redeemer, and with this immense love from the Venezuelan people… we will prevail.”- Hugo Chavez in respect of his accusation, OAS – “a tool the US uses against us”.

Do the Americans not pray to the same God?

Will they not also ‘prevail’?

The absurdities of religion and politics!

Christian Bigots won’t be Missed

Christian Pastor Calls For Starbucks Boycott Over Gay Marriage Support

A Christian pastor is asking customers to boycott Starbucks due to the company’s support of a bill to legalize gay marriage in Washington state, King 5 News reports.

“Christians are upset with Starbucks for turning against God…Starbucks can follow Satan if they want to,” Steven Andrew, and evangelical pastor and president of the USA Christian Ministries in California, said in a statement.

Good, the damned bigots won’t be missed!

These evangelical bastards think they have all the answers. It’s about time they pulled their heads out of their sanctimonious arseholes and looked around at the real world.

As for being a ‘Christian’ pastor, he’s about as unChristian as they come. Doesn’t the church teach tolerance?

Just look at us

Everything is backwards; everything is upside down.
Doctors destroy health,
lawyers destroy justice,
universities destroy knowledge,
governments destroy freedom,
the major media destroy information
and religions destroy spirituality”
– Michael Ellner
