UK – The New Labour Leader Ed Miliband Is An Atheist – Thank gOd!Posted by Phil Ferguson on September 30th, 2010 – 1 Comment – Posted in atheists
From the Telegraph.
The Labour leader’s atheism puts him in stark contrast to his predecessors Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, for whom religion was a central part of their lives.
In an interview on Radio 5 Live, Mr Miliband was asked by presenter Nicky Campbell: ”Do you believe in God?”
The Labour leader replied: ”I don’t believe in God personally, but I have great respect for those people who do.
Yeah. Sounds way better than Blair….
Mr Blair has confirmed since leaving power that his religious faith was ”hugely important” to his premiership. He said he did not speak publicly about his belief while in office out of fear voters would think him a ”nutter”.Since leaving Downing Street, he has converted to Roman Catholicism, and in his recent memoir, A Journey, he wrote: ”I have always been more interested in religion than politics.”
He is a NUTTER!
Maybe the UK can get away from all of the nasty faith schools.
Ed said he believed most faith schools did a ”fantastic” job in educating children, but added he thought it best for children of different backgrounds to be educated together.
Any readers from the UK? What do you think?
