My two initial thoughts
1. What the fuck? Minister for faith? Huh?
2. I can just about hear the far right screaming about the Islamification of Britain being well under way and we should’ve listened to them all along.
It doesn’t matter what religion the Minister for Faith is, there shouldn’t be one. religionists aren’t being persecuted out of existence, their unearned privilege in society is slowly being eroded. The creation of this office is a step backwards. Once again, believers of fairy stories have the ear of government with no natural justification.
