Dy’er Sez: This would just be a pathetically funny comment if it weren’t for the fact that Blair is being touted to be president of the EU. I wonder, if he gets in, are we going to see the first witch hunts in Europe in a few hundred years? This is a VERY dangerous belief to adhere to for a man who wields such power. Let us not forget that Bush said that he was following God’s orders while he was in office…and we all know how that story went.

The Blair Witch Project: Former Prime Minister Warns of Atheists Among Us
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair used a speech at Georgetown University to warn of the threat against the West that is growing at alarming rate. No, he wasn’t talking about terrorism, the recession, or even Swine Flu. He was talking about atheists and the menace they present to the world. Not since leaders tackled the dangers of witches in our midst has a politician sounded such an alarm. This politician happens to be the leading contender for the first “president of Europe.”
Blair sounded the alarm for all God-fearing citizens to be on the look out for atheists who he seems to portray as an equal threat as terrorists. He warned that “[w]e face an aggressive secular attack from without. We face the threat of extremism from within.” He called on religious people to unite against atheists who offer “no hope” and threaten the demise of the West. How dangerous? Just read this incredible line: “Those who scorn God and those who do violence in God’s name, both represent views of religion. But both offer no hope for faith in the twenty first century.”
