← Denham's misplaced 'faith group' faith

Robocop's Avatar Jump to comment 23 by Robocop

A wise politician listens to all of his/her significant constituencies. Despite Grayling's (typical and typically misplaced) hysteria, that's all that's promised to the faith groups. Grayling is all worked up over "faith-based courts" and "giv[ing] them some of our tax money" when, as far as I can tell, there is no evidence that any change in this regard is in the offing.

The quote in the linked article from Terry Sanderson, said to be president of the National Secular Society, makes it clear just how much silliness is afoot:

"We shouldn't have unelected people influencing decision making."

Yeah, like economists, and scientists and, well, voters....

Laughable, but also (sadly) typical.
