Stealth secularism ... that's pretty funny coming from a Muslim who is using this for her not-so-stealth jihad.

Sorry, but nutty conspiracy theory talk doesn't help the cause. Warsi is bad enough without crackpot theories about hidden motives.

Atheist numbers are no more than a mote in the eye of overwhelming numbers of the religious, rather like 14,000,000+- Jews compared to 1,500,000,000+- Muslims on the planet.

If you really want to frame this as us vs. them (there's always a Them in conspiracy theories), then you really need to get your numbers right. The number of non-religious in the world is estimated to be about a billion. Add that to 500,000,000 atheist Buddhists and we don't look like such a minority.
