Prelates Attack Atheism

Michelangelo - The Creation of Adam (Creationism in a nutshell)A week ago Coxsoft Art reported that UK Christians are getting stroppy. Then it was over festive stamps. Yesterday, under the title Archbishop attacks public atheism, BBC News reported that the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, condemns "the systematic erosion of Christianity from public life". This outburst followed a joint attack on "intolerant public atheism" by the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and Catholic leader Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor. Isn't it time somebody told these dinosaurs that the World Health Organization includes "religiosity" in its classification of mental diseases, that a survey this year found that approximately 75% of Britons reject Creationism in favour of Darwin's theory of evolution, and that, to cap it all, Alan Yentob in one of his BBC TV programmes described the UK as "a post-Christian society"? (If Yentob says so, it must be true!) Wouldn't it be better for all concerned if these potty prelates stopped pontificating to the media, sought treatment for their religiosity and joined the majority of Brits in the 21st Century?
