I’m a Believer

How to gain a quango job in the progressive world:

Given that the party appointed a woman who does not believe in structural racism to the government commission on racial inequalities, the Tories’ investigation into their issues with race and Islam is unlikely to be a rigorous affair.

Only those who already believe might be allowed to consider what should be believed.

    Well, yeah. I mean it kind of helps if one applies for a job as, say, a bishop.

    Many bishops don’t believe in God. In the diocese where I live, the “Archdeacon for Rural Mission” organised a memorial service for George Floyd, because local villagers presumably talk of little else. And the Bishop says his “top priority” is to review church monuments to identify slavery connections.

  3. …despite calling Saudis “sand peasants” and posting material comparing Asian people to dogs,/b>.”

    Lol. I’m sure those poor muslims feelings were hurt but until they address the rape, sexual abuse, torture, beatings and murders of English people by muslims, they can f**k right off.

    …it’s about a vision of the world in which it is acceptable to sort people on this British group of islands into categories of indigenous and alien, and affording them rights and respect along those lines.

    I thought the left were all in favour of the rights of indigenous people? Or does she think that British people aren’t indigenous to the British Isles?

  4. There are thousands of people happy to “investigate” structural racism, sexism, anyoldism. So the taxpayer does not need to fund a quango to do it.

    “Many bishops don’t believe in God. In the diocese where I live, the “Archdeacon for Rural Mission” organised a memorial service for George Floyd”

    I suppose it’s Christian to pray for all sinners, but did he have a memorial service for all Americans who died, or just the career criminals resisting arrest?

  6. I guess the kids that attended the Ariana Grande concert were ‘guilty as charged’ and ‘got what was coming to them’ as did the 7/7 victims and so on. The hypocrisy doesn’t even surprise – and this from someone who endorsed as PM an anti- Semite of unparalleled viciousness. So all prejudices are equal, but some are more equal than others….

    The greatest problem with the Church of England is that centuries ago the Prime Minister took over the monarch’s role of appointing bishops, so a politician who could well be a closet atheist (or even a Dawkinist, believing that he/she *is* God) chooses whom to appoint as bishop (her Nibs certainly appears to be a Christian and would make better choices).
    Trendies started in the American Episcopalian church with the first woman bishop being a divorcee (a condition that would have barred a man from remaining a CoE Vicar/Rector, let alone bishop at that time) so I worry about high-profile female appointments – the low-profile ones are usually OK. About forty years ago I listened to a talk by a leading advocate for women priests who argued for female ordination on feminist grounds and one of my more devout friends with a better knowledge & understanding of theology commented that there was a case for women clergy *as long as it was not her*.

  8. Er…John, First, there are no people who regard themselves as “Dawkinists”. Such a thought would be “Dawkinist” blasphemy. Secondly, the idea that anyone who has the slightest knowledge of Dawkins’ arguments would believe that he/she/it is God! Lol!

  9. You are correct, Jonathan. Malik would be raped and killed by Muslims. Her lack of Islamaphobia shows she is an idiot. The Left’s cognitive dissonance is overwhelming.

    Dawkins used to claim that he knew there was no God, which implies omniscience, which implies Divinity. Hence my snark.
    *After* this was pointed out too publically he backtracked and said we should be atheists because the existence of God was not disprovable – which sounds like a logical argument against being atheists.
