Skip to comments.Christians lose out to atheists…as religious people are ‘held back from top positions’ (UK)

Christians are less likely than atheists to be promoted to top jobs, official figures show.
Nearly a quarter of people with no religious belief live in homes headed by someone with a senior executive position or a job in one of the professions. However, well under a fifth of Christians work in the best-paid and most influential jobs or are married to someone who does.
Barrister Andrea Minichiello Williams, a member of the Church of Englands General Synod, said: If you hold views that are contrary to the prevailing orthodoxy, you are seen as potential trouble. This is a real phenomenon. Christianity is now a bar to appointment or promotion.
But others believe the Christian majority are being outpaced by more ambitious religious groups.

No, it is definitely political.
Christians lose out to atheists for senior jobs as religious people are held back from top positions
Hmm. I surmise this must be a UK thing? Successful folks around my area of PA are mostly all Christian of some denomination. I would think that’s similar across the US in general?
At this point, the stage is set and these in-between mutterings don’t really matter.
England WILL be Muslim-controlled by Mid-Century. It is inevitable because the English people don’t have the balls to kick out all these ‘silent Jihadists’ from their country.
That's because Satan is still the prince of the power of the air. Very soon, Christians will have 100% of the top jobs of the entire earth. Atheists better enjoy their good jobs for the next few years, because that'll be it for them for the next 1000 years or more.
The most interesting stat is that England/Wales now has 33 million Christians, of which only one-in-three are regular churchgoers. Of those 11 million, my guess is that at least half are more than 50 years old. I think there are now about 3 million Muslims in England, so - unless something drastic changes - in about 25 years there will be more people in Britain attending a mosque on a regular basis than a Christian church.
At this point, I hope the Muslims do take over, so the atheists reap what they sow.
Here in America, too. This morning, pastor spoke of two types of atheism: the overt, “scientific” flavor, expressed by men like Dawkins; the other, more religious-tinged that shows no fear of “the man upstairs”.
Both deny the God of creation and holiness.
Instead, we ought to have the attitude of David in Psalm 139....one of awe and healthy fear of the Almighty.
This has been in the works for a long time all across the West.
France had the Affair des fiches 100 years ago with the same exact thing going on in their military.
I usually group atheists into two categories.
Nietzschean & Post-modern.
The Nietzscheans are honest people. They carry their logic out to its full conclusion, find no meaning to life, find no good or evil, and usually fall into depression or psychosis, as Nietzche himself did. These people are very honest.
The post-moderns or ‘new atheists’, are individuals who seek to either make money through mockery, avoid any kind of moral judgement (unless they deem it to be important to them), or cling to ideas that don’t compute with atheism, holding to ridiculous philosophies like contractarianism etc. These people are very dishonest.
In the end, atheism is the tool of the statist, and one of the most invaluable in his arsenal as he assaults liberty and truth. Stalin found his soldiers to be very reliable when ordered to torture beyond imagination. All he had to do was remove from them a sense of morality grounded in the transcendent.
The goal of the statist is to create two classes, the managers and the animals. When man is reduced to an animal, he can be killed with impunity, he will kill with impunity, he can have his back broken with hard labor, or can be subjected to degradation for amusement. He can be caged without complaint, and pacified with the most mundane.
I heard a story once about Stalin in which he was asked how long he thought he could keep torturing his people before they rose up against him. He took a chicken in one hand, pulled every feather from its body as it writhed in pain, then set it on the ground. He then took some bread and offered it to the chicken, who gladly came to him to feed.
The statist must make an animal of his fellow man, and the first step is to remove the inner witness of our origin, purpose, morality, and destiny.
A storm is coming to the UK one way or another. Just as God used Assyria and Babylon to judge His people when they strayed and mocked Him, so to shall he use the Muslim hordes to judge those who seek His removal.
The comments at the end of the article are incredibly vile. Really horrible to see what has become of that once-great nation. Of course the believers aren’t reading a rag like the Daily Mail anyway so the comments are going to be skewed toward the thinking of the ignorant and liberal; the Christians and conservatives in England read the Telegraph.
England is pretty messed up. I hear their boy and girl scouts are allowed to have sex in the tents already, probably after having some alcopops and watching all the sex in Big Brother House on TV.
