I've posted the whole article here because I find it a very interesting read, the contrast between the public perception of christianity in the UK
and that of the US is to my mind quite stark.
For those that don't know Vine quite a popular BBC presenter and is mostly involved in discussion and debate and on the whole I have found him
(whilst presenting) pretty level headed and a reasonable neutral moderator.
It is unfortunate that he now seems to be dragging his arse into the whinging xtian camp which is pretty sad and doesn't seem to see that his own
gang has caused him to feel gagged and to a degree I sympathies with the guy but, only to a degree.
The BBC is (supposedly) a public broadcaster yet is continually sending mixed messages to it's audiences and quite frankly pissing people off. An
example of which is Radio 2 on which Vine has a daily show (when he's not on holidays but that's another issue) where day in day the station panders
to the religious primarily christian.
When we listen to the peak time breakfast show, which is mostly frivolous banter light humor with a splash of news and weather and a few popular
songs. We are suddenly brought to a screeching halt by some soap box minister ,mullah or rabbi ranting on about an invisible man that lives in the sky
and how it's so hard to figure out why he would cause an earth quake to kill so many, or why he's on both sides in a war, but rest assured but he
loves us and things will be fine when we are dead.
Ok, fine the UK is supposedly a democracy and some people do actually believe this drivel but everyone has the chance to air their view, or do they ?
Well no they don't the atheist simply doesn't;t have a look in despite campaigning for fairness the finger of god is flipped by those that are
intent on forcing their ludicrous superstitions upon the rest of us at every available opportunity.

In the very unlikely event that Mr Vine should actually read this thread, well , I'm sorry my friend but blame your own club who have for so long
"Conspired" to not let a day go by without me or my family having Jesus rammed down our throats at every given opportunity.
We fully understand (but do not sympathise) that the churches are empty and your club is getting smaller and the Allah god appears to be beating your
jesus god hands down when it comes to club membership, but your delusion has had its' day it has been caught out and shown to be the biggest lie of
Here's a little something for you and your gang to think about Mr Vine, for centuries you have claimed that your leader Jesus was the wisest, the
answer to all problems the lamb to turn to for advice on how to proceed in making the world a better place. Your gang threatened, killed, tortured.
stole ,lied enslaved and conspired to force your truth on people like me.
Your gang of christian sheep have failed, miserably and at great cost to humanity, of all your parables, psalms, sermons and songs none of this was
enough you failed.
Yet, how so ironic it is, that if your gang had set aside it's arrogance and listened to the message from one simple man a slave no less how
different things could possible have been for you now.
The man was Aesop and his message was contained in the tale of The Sun And The Wind and most importantly it would not have mattered whether or not he
Christianity you have reaped what you have sown for centuries, misery.
