Binky is ruminating on what happens when atheists take over governments.
He links to Pat Condell, whom I still like quite a lot and wouldn't object to having a beer with, who has, in is own terms, been "excommunicated" from the Atheist Church for having heretical beliefs about Muslims. I suppose I can't really claim dibs on the observation that atheism, being a belief in the non-existence of God, is as based on un-provable, spiritual ideas as theism. Is, in fact, a religion. And a particularly nasty one.
Not quite as nasty, yet, as the Religion of Pieces, but certainly as dedicated to shutting up all opposition.

Of course, there may have been a different letter offered to the press from Christians, (who, I might add, still make up the majority in Australia, as in most other Western countries) warning of the dire consequences of electing Julia Gillard, an avowed atheist and pro-abort feminist. But we'll never know, will we?
No voices were heard warning that a Gillard premiership will impose atheist beliefs on the country. But of course, not having been heard doesn't mean that no one tried.
