Aggressive atheist liberals

The composer James MacMillan was widely quoted yesterday warning of the liberal elite's 'ignorance-fuelled hostility to religion'. Apparently, atheist liberals are using "increasingly aggressive" means to drive religion out of public life and culture. Hmm. At the risk of upsetting JM's religious right readership... I can't help wondering: of what are we supposed to be ignorant?

Ok Captain Haddock, first i am a legion and now a religious right wing nutter? I think you overestimate JM's loyal followers. Tis only myself and Mrs dNo, and occassionally we will read to the children if they have been particularly naughty.
Well done on the map, did indeed impress us all.
Keep up the good work, dont forget to drop by and abuse me the way JM would...

You are clearly ignorant of the terrible wrath of Sarah Palin. She knows where you live, fish boy.

I think you'll find that Catholic mother in laws are always right and know everything, so just bloody well listen to them.

Cpn Haddock thanks you all for your encouragement. It is, of course, a terrible responsibility running the ship whilst the great JM is sunning himself in bloody abroad and I am grateful for any help in avoiding rocks and ...metaphor overload.
