We’re more popular than Jesus now.

According to the bible “censuses are immoral” – and God killed 70,000 innocent counted Jews to punish David for counting them…

It’s interesting that the latest census information we have shows that atheism is more popular in Britain than any religion. The figures show that the proportion of the population who identify themselves as having no religion is 48.5%. The most popular religion, Christianity, now makes up only 43.8% of the population.

But the Prime Minister, David Cameron, described Britain as a “Christian country” in his message last Christmas. He said the country’s religious values have made it a “home to people of all faiths and none”.

That’s a strange thing to say because the bible is pretty intolerant of other religions and asks christians to kill non-believers. Deuteronomy 17 says, “If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant; 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded; 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel; 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die”.

Most Christians don’t stone people to death for belonging to another faith. Why do they ignore that part of the bible? And for that matter, why do they ignore many other bits of it?

Probably because the bible is out of date and is not, as many christians would have us believe, “the truth”. It’s a work of fiction written thousands of years ago by people who thought the earth was flat and didn’t know where the sun went at night.

The bible, endorses slavery many times, Exodus 21:7-10 even says men can sell their daughters into slavery. The bible’s not big on equality either, not even for a women’s choice of what to wear. Deuteronomy 22:5 says “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man”. In fact the Bible says that the sole reason God created women in the first place was to provide company and service to men (1 Corinthians 11:9).

Hillary Clinton describes herself as a christian but clearly doesn’t accept the bible’s view of women because she’s running to become the leader of the free world (which includes men) and she’s doing it in a trouser suit!

Some christians believe that they get their moral compass from the bible. If that was true they wouldn’t have a problem with killing homosexuals (Leviticus 20:13) or stoning non-believers or even children, “Stone disobedient children” (Deuteronomy 21:18-21).

The fact that your average christian is uncomfortable with those things shows that they have their own internal moral compass that points to the polar opposite of what’s in their bible.

David Cameron is wrong, Britain is not a christian country. The majority of people who live here are atheists and most of the people who describe themselves as christians have secular values.
