The Foreign Office is Extremely Lucky We are Not Muslims...

That's nearly all I'm going to say...

Click here for The Telegraph's and here for The Daily Mail's accounts of the shocking level of puerile time-wasting and deep-rooted, vicious anti-Catholicism embedded in the heart of the British Government and establishment.

The Guardian certainly didn't go to town on this story, giving it just four small paragraphs. Hardly that surprising, really, given their zealously liberal line on current events and unsurpassed loyalty to the new Labour, secular-state based atheist machine, for whom moral values like 'we shouldn't kill unborn children' are just something about which to giggle inanely during a brainstorming session.

According to the BBC News website, which somehow still manages to end a story about rabid anti-Catholicism in the civil service, in the run up to the Papal visit, by discussing the abuse scandals...

'A source told the BBC News website the individual since moved to other duties had called the group together for "some blue-skies creative thinking about how to make the visit a success", but their discussions had become "a joke that has gone too far".'

"A joke that has gone too far". Yep. That pretty much sums up new Labour.

I'm astonished to learn of the existence within Whitehall of officials prejudiced against people of faith, and especially the Catholic faith!!! Astonished, I tell you!!! Oh, wait...maybe not.... Still, this is rather incredible stuff.I'm relieved to hear that the responsible party 'accepted' the view that he made a serious error of judgment....
