No lynch mobs of crazies for Clegg and Milliband

In the United States of America the religious leanings of an politician is a serious matter. Support will rise and fall depending on “how Christian” a candidate for office declares himself/herself to be. President Obama is currently in the midst of extolling his faith, not least to appease that bat shit crazies (a huge number of whom belong to the Tea Party) who believe he is a Muslim intent on destroying the American way of life (which for many consists of treating many of their fellow humans like crap).

In the UK the religious orientation of a politician is irrelevant to anyone with a modicum of common sense – in fact Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg, leaders of two of the three major British political parties are self-proclaimed atheists. Have they been hunted out of office by torch-wielding lunatics? Nope. Their beliefs, or lack thereof, are entirely their own business as is the case with anybody. As long as their viewpoints do not impact upon their policies or stance towards others who gives a shit if they are Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Atheist, Agnostic, etc, etc, etc.

To my mind Bush and Blair allowed their religious beliefs impact upon their decision making. After all when someone is as arrogant as them, with a complete faith in the afterlife, they’re not going to be too worried about getting men and women killed in droves in military service in pointless wars when there is a “paradise” waiting for them on the other side of the veil of death.
