Yet, these same people are happy for the State to assume powers that belong to that Almighty Being alone, such as the hour and manner of the death of its citizens, despite recent history suggesting that this may not be a wise idea.
Even if God were not to exist and all believers to be cruelly deceived, I'd still think, given the way the 20th century went, that the dumber contingent would be those who considered the State to be a reliable and trustworthy source of moral authority and wise judgment, especially when it comes to the matter of discerning the value of the lives of those citizens - of who should live and who should die.
eerie report in The Telegraph on the subject and the readers agree that this is a jolly good idea!
God help us. And these people think we're dumb! What a nation of lemmings! In their hatred and suspicion of the Church and Christians, they place all their trust, loyalty and even the value of the lives of their children in the hands a British State awash with people who, literally, despise human beings, even though they've watched TV documentaries about Hitler and Stalin and know how many people were killed once the State assumed the very same powers!
