The countrys most senior Roman Catholic warned yesterday that secular atheists mean to wipe out Christianity in Britain.
Cardinal Cormac Murphy-OConnor said supporters of secular values do not tolerate dissent and warned their ambition to eliminate religious belief was very, very dangerous.
He warned that secular values had fostered the violence of totalitarian states and the purges and wars that killed millions in the 20th century.
The cardinal, who stepped down as leader of Englands Catholics three years ago, declared: In the name of tolerance it seems to me tolerance is being abolished.
His speech to an audience of Catholic thinkers in Leicester was the most powerful denunciation yet by a senior churchman of what many Christians see as a state-backed attempt to sideline their faith.
The cardinal condemned the Government for trying to hijack the meaning of marriage with its plans for same-sex marriage, denounced the equality laws that led to the closure of Catholic adoption agencies, and protested against the state-backed movement to ban the wearing of the cross by Christians at work.

He finally woke up to the current athiest/secular humanist threat.
Christianity will never be wiped out on this earth until believers are taken up to be with the Lord.
It’s starting over here too. The whole anti-bullying movement is just an attempt to forcibly silence any criticism of homosexuality.
You’re right. “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
The resurrection of the dead is at the Last Judgment.
Heck, most intelligent people started realizing that in the '70s.
Reading some of the comments from the daily mail and it reveals that the UK is in serious trouble.

True but that does not mean that it will always exist in Britain or any other particular nation. Just look at Turkey, Syria and North Africa, which all were once Christian.
Yes, Christianity is being eliminated in England, and elsewhere.
I agree that a country as a whole may cease to identify as Christian, but there will always be Christians in those countries. The church may be "underground", but it will continue to exist.
