Christian politician to atheist: Get over it

Do wait for pansy-ass American politicians to say this, as to say that America is a Christian nation takes guts these days. But this Brit has no problem saying the facts.

While Obama tries to convince America that we were founded on Muslim values, and he and his minions mock and deride Christianity, the outspoken British Minister, Eric Pickles as this to say:

“Militant atheists” should accept that Britain is a Christian country and “get over it”, the communities secretary Eric Pickles said yesterday.

Pickles changed the law in 2012 to ensure that English parish councils could not face legal challenges for including prayers in public meetings, and accused the last Labour government of “diminishing Christianity” by suggesting that religion and politics could not mix.

The minister told delegates at the Conservative spring forum in London that non-believers should not be able to impose “politically correct intolerance” on others.

“I’ve stopped an attempt by militant atheists to ban councils having prayers at the start of meetings if they wish,” said Pickles. “Heaven forbid. We’re a Christian nation. We have an established church. Get over it. And don’t impose your politically correct intolerance on others.”

Atheists, take note. There are a lot more Christian crusaders {pardon the pun} than you think.
