Britain being overtaken by ‘militant secularists’, says Baroness Warsi

British society is under threat from the rising tide of “militant secularisation” reminiscent of “totalitarian regimes”, a Cabinet Minister warns.

In an historic visit to the Vatican, Baroness Warsi will express her “fear” about the marginalisation of religion throughout Britain and Europe, saying that faith needs “a seat at the table in public life”.

In an article for The Daily Telegraph, the Cabinet Office minister says that to create a “more just society” Britons must “feel stronger in their religious identities”.

The minister, who is also chairman of the Conservative Party, says: “My fear today is that a militant secularisation is taking hold of our societies. We see it in any number of things: when signs of religion cannot be displayed or worn in government buildings; and where religion is sidelined, marginalised and downgraded in the public sphere.

    To soften the secularists, we have to take out some steam out from the arguments of atheism. For this I refer them to the homepage and the page on atheism of the Islam for the West.

    Interesting that the Baroness is having similar views to the pope. (and actually I agree with both of them (on this point)).
