What Professor Bonney is proposing is cultural cleansing (a subset of ethnic cleansing)

Narcissistic and muddled argument from Norman Bonney (Emeritus professor at Edinburgh Napier University) that because the United Kingdom population has supposedly become less Christian and Anglican (he is confusing church attendance with religious belief) the Remembrance ceremony at the Cenotaph should become secular.

Excuse me Professor Bonney, this is not about you and your beliefs.  It is not even about the rest of us and our beliefs.  It is about the war dead - the vast majority of whom were Christian and Anglican.

Atheists when they stop believing in God do not become "rational" and free-thinking.

They almost always substitute themselves for God and place themselves at the centre of the Universe.

Which is why they are so arrogant and intolerant and want to change the world to suit their own particular outlook.

And which is why we get insensitive lobbyists like Professor Bonney launching grossly offensive "papers" on the eve of Remembrance Sunday.

What Professor Bonney is proposing is cultural cleansing (a subset of ethnic cleansing) aimed at removing a religious group (Anglicans) from participation in a national ceremony.
