So it begins.
The obliteration of any vestige of this province’s Christian past. I can begin to hear the triumphant cry “separation of church and state,” forgetting the irony that our head of state, Queen Elizabeth II, just happens to also be, wait for it, head of the Church of England. As they (whoever they are) say “epic fail” on that one.
It starts off small with the removal of crosses in public places and moves on
to things like the restriction of public employees having any sort of visible religious item on their person.
It finally continues on until the fanatical fringe become like the Taliban, blowing up Buddhist imagery to rid themselves of any reminder of their inconvenient history.
They will not stop their attack on any vestiges of religion until they rest in the knowledge that the capital of this fine province is known as Greater Mount Pearl.
