I don't know what to say about this, except that I need to give my readers a major BARF ALERT before they click on the link:
Britain is no longer a Christian nation and Christmas should be downgraded in favour of festivals from other religions to improve race relations, according to an explosive new report.
Labour's favourite think tank says that because it would be hard to 'expunge' Christmas from the national calendar, 'even-handedness' means public organisations must start giving other religions equal footing.
The leaked findings of its investigation into identity, citizenship and community cohesion, seen by the Daily Mail, triggered a storm of protest.
Other controversial measures it proposes include:
• New 'birth ceremonies', at which the state and parents agree to 'work in partnership' to bring up newborns• Action to 'ensure access' for ethnic minorities to the 'largely white' British countryside• An overhaul of Britain's 'imperial' honours system• Bishops being thrown out of the House of Lords• An end to 'sectarian' religious education in schools• Encouraging people to fly flags other than the Union Jack
The report has been prepared by the Institute for Public Policy Research, which has close ties to Labour and has shaped many of its key policies, including ID cards, bin taxes and road pricing.
