Matt Barber Says Christian Terrorists Don’t Exist, Despite All the Examples to the Contrary

The 19-member committee, which included Andrew Copson of the British Humanist Association, was to make policy recommendations as well.

They issued their final report today, and it’s causing massive headaches for those who thrive on Christian privilege.

The report (which wasn’t available in full at the time I wrote this) makes clear that Britain is no longer a Christian country in any meaningful sense and should be systematically de-Christianized:
