There Probably Is No God… Just Be Good For Goodness Sake

This was my favourite news story of the year.

The reaction was priceless

There is NO OUTCRY IN BRITAIN! lol… We seriously didn’t care! We really really didn’t care! You can’t believe how much we didn’t care….

The fact is WE in Great Britain.. have absolutely no interest in what religious people do…

According to the census statistics in 2001, 71% of brits are protestant… but think about this. In the 1600’s our King Henry VIII broke free from the catholic church so he could get a divorce from dodgy looking Catherine of Aragon, and have his wicked way with the tasty sex-kitten Anne Boleyn. We called the newly reformed protestant church… The Chuch Of England… get it… THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND.

If we called it “Martin Luther’s German Christian Church of Protestants”, NO ONE IN BRITAIN would ever mark it down on their census forms. The british people have not cared about religion for a very long time. Bear in mind that the same census in 2001 reported an excellent 0.7% of people claiming to be Jedi Knights, making it the fourth biggest religion in the UK!

There is a religion in the UK, people go every week, people believe in it completely, people love it like they love their own family. It’s not christian, it’s not Muslim, it’s not even Buddhism….

Football is the religion of Britain, it has been since the 1900’s. And it is followed far more than any make-believe deity, its attended each week with crowds bigger than any church or mosque could dream of on our isle.

If you walked down a street with a quotation of the bible on your t-shirt, chances are you would be stopped and/or laughed at. We don’t thrust our silly ideas at other people, and we don’t presume others need to be saved, we don’t enjoy being told what to do, especially by people who seem to have no regard for their own rules. Walking down the high street with a football shirt is as normal as baseball hats in the US.

I don’t even like football that much, but at least its real.

BIG BIG BIG WELL DONE for the right-wing Fox News to come out with even more rubbish about britain. They are really having a bumper year after their attacks on the british health System. Seriously people… drive 100 miles to see a doctor, have operations without X-Rays, kill people off because they’re too old!  Fox News really has made a big effort this year!

Now they manage to take the mickey out of the one group of people saying just be good regardless of what you believe in. We dont see American Humanists bombing buildings, or terrorising abortionist doctors. They just want people to be good to each other.

Wow! I bet Jesus would approve… I seem to remember reading Jesus wasn’t a big fan of churches either.

  1. Oh yeah… the people on the brit news story looked outraged…. completely beside themselves…. uh… not… talk about a beat up story. Or maybe they’re working on the pretense that brits are conservative and that the apathy they were displaying was secretly masking seething rage and a whole bottle of outcrying…Because, you know, you brits are… See More like that… it’s the quiet ones you’ve got to watch…

    I think the messages are kinda cute, they should do an ad campaign in Australia – it’d totally bring a smile to my face!


  2. That hot chick in the advert photo undeniably proves there is a god.

  3. Hope you write more new posts. Being an out-of-the-closet is much harder in small-town amerika than I think it is in other western countries. Amerika clings to this religious show tenaciously, even if not much of anybody lives by any particular spiritual code. In my own small-town environment, being an atheist is, to many people, tantamount to being either insane or evil. — Anne

  4. Absollutely! Football IS the religion of the UK. And to me, anyway, that’s just as bad as having a god for a god.

  5. For the love of Mike! Fox News can shove it, as far as I’m concerned. Athiests and Agnostics don’t feel left out at Xmas because Xmas is no longer a religious holiday. Xmas is as commercialized as any other “secular” holiday on the calendar. It’s about presents and a jolly fat guy in a red suit. That’s it. The people who believe in the good fairy in the sky use the xmas pretense as an excuse to tout their religious fanatacism even more in-your-face than normal, claiming that “Jesus is the reason for the season.” Yeah… um, folks, the season would come and go without a plastic doll in a hay loft in your front yard. In fact, if there IS a Baby Jeebus, I’m pretty sure he’d find the plastic doll offensive.

    Folks, all the Athiests and Agnostics wanted was a fair say. We wanted the ability to have our ideas and beliefs put on the side of a bus or billboard or on a t-shirt the same way the bible-thumpers do, to show you how idiotic you sound. LEAVE THEM ALONE! If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. Free country, my ass.
