Well, they must be atheists because apparently God made the Icelandic volcano erupt and we all know that God never ever hurts his followers.

Not everyone is as xenophobic as you, Andy.

1. The UK is not atheistic. They just don't talk about religion in public nearly as much as Americans do.
2. Liberals, for the most part, aren't fond of censorship. People who burn/ban books tend to be right-wing.

They're in a prison camp?

Fuck you, Schlafly. We're not half as secular as I'd like us to be but they're far better off here than in Bible Belt America.

Trapped in the U.K.? THIS MEANS WAR!
What? Really? Their own free will?

I tried to click on the link to Conservapedia, but the UK government's liberal censorship just kept redirecting me to a site which kept trying to indoctrinate me with evolutionary theory through the medium of gay porn. In fact, all newspapers, television shows and all internet content is filtered in similar ways.
And of course the UK is completely atheistic. We pushed all those bishops who sat in Parliament into the Thames years back, didn't you know? And the Queen is no longer the head of the Anglican Church, because we burnt down all the Anglican churches. And all the other places of worship. We've had to start a new religion around Doctor Who.
Oh no, wait. None of that happened. Carry on.

We... we're atheistic?
That must come as a shock to the Queen, head of the Church of England. For crying out loud, our head of state is also head of our own personal brand of state-run Christianity. Most of our laws are still based around the ideas of Christianity. Its difficult to see how we could be less atheistic.
Of course, most of us Brits tend to treat religion as more a hobby than a lifestyle. But that's just because we're more mature about the whole thing. :P
And we rarely censor anything. If we did, UKIP and the BNP wouldn't have just released a party political broadcast each.

@Cy: Do you have something against the Secular Church of the Sainted Physician?
4/29/2010 10:33:59 AM
Atheist? You realise we have a state church?
4/29/2010 10:35:41 AM
But maybe the bit about Doctor Who should

Schlafly himself, it might be a parodist.

Ok, is Schlafly a really dedicated troll or what? It's getting hard to tell with this idiot.

4/29/2010 10:41:42 AM
yes please oh god take them back!
4/29/2010 10:50:31 AM
Muh hah hah hah haaaaah! Mr Schlafly is right, we plan to educate them in our secret facilities. We've taught apes advanced calculus so getting some Americans to understand year 1 (5 years old) logic should be possible! Soon you'll be over run with right minded, free thinking, tolerant... ah what the hell, there's an election debate on the telly tonight, I can't be arsed, sent 'em back!

I really like how Andy is trying to paint the UK to look like some kind of a hellhole. Perhaps he thinks that every city in the UK is Glasgow. Somebody send Mr. Fry to tear this guy a new hole to his echo chamber.
4/29/2010 11:13:45 AM
Trapped? You don't think they're there because they want to escape your lunatic fantasy?
4/29/2010 11:22:25 AM
"They are like being (sic) stranded in the desert without any water."
They love that. It makes them feel more biblical and have a greater empathy with the ancient desert dwelling nutcases who came up with all the mad nonsense.
4/29/2010 11:34:51 AM
Well, if they feel trapped here, I assure you we don't mind if they fuck off back to Jesusland.
4/29/2010 11:35:21 AM
If I had the means right now, I'd join them. I'd much rather be in the atheistic UK right now than bible-belt America. Talk about being stranded in a desert...

Andy, look up "liberal" and "censorship." No, don't look it up on Conservapedia. Use a real dictionary.
4/29/2010 12:06:34 PM
Chill Andy. It's only until the volcanic cloud dissipates. If it means that much to you, you could charter a cruise ship to bring 'em back. If you're lucky maybe they'll bring some of that hard core British porn back with them.
PS to my British friends: your porn sucks. You seriously need help in the adult entertainment business.

"I really like how Andy is trying to paint the UK to look like some kind of a hellhole. Perhaps he thinks that every city in the UK is Glasgow."
So speaks the voice of ignorance. Glasgow is in no way, shape or form a "hellhole". If you knew anything about Glasgow you'd know it was one of the most friendly, open, liberal and progressive cities there is. The only place in the UK with more shops, restaurants, clubs and bars is London and it's more than 20 times the size. It does, however, lack the gun crime that characterises that and other English cities. What it does suffer from is deprivation, a direct result of decades of wilful neglect by successive Westmidden governments.
Glasgow is a beautiful place and a wonderful place to live and study - it's not called the Dear Green Place for nothing. Don't fall for the old "No Mean City" stereotype - that's a downright, offensive, lie.
