    Yes he was in charge of the Wartime British War Councel and had the final sign off on Operation Overlord and Neptune.

    Have you never picked up a history book and read the Normandy affair?

    As shocking as it may be for you to understand, US troops weren't the only ones there. There was more than one country present. 10 countries taking part to be exact.

    Well you keep that idea.
    We will stick with what works for us.

    I find that highly amusing, for such a church/state seperation. Religion sure as heck comes up alot in the political sphere often whereas in comparison to UK. Religion has never come up with political leaders or politicans. It seems we emulate the fact it is 'private business'

    Like we practice what we preach. Actually, while we don't have a state religion, people are free to vote for any idiotic idea they want to. Since people are generally religious, and those who are religious tend to take it very seriously, it makes it very difficult for some one who does not claim a religion to get elected.

    Exactly, can you ever imagine an Atheist for a President?
    Some were having fits at the possibility of a muslim getting in ...

    Many people in UK have no idea what their MP's religion, i have no idea what mine is. Nor do many know where they stand on Abortion, Gay marriage, Stem cell. No one really cares. The second you leave your house, keep it down and keep it to yourself imo.

    Actually it has come up and should do here. It may come up less here and be more restrained but plenty of MPs and such have religious convictions that influence them. Look at Anne Widdecombe part of the traditionalist Tory wing and very much a staunch Catholic.

    Seeing as the lord's spiritual still sit in the house of lords, and long may they do, your comment is rather strange. You have to remember the liberal media, elites and left-liberal politics are far from the only one's in Britain. I don't want to be completely like the US but the media-driven decline of religion in some quarter of British politics is certainly a shame in my eyes.

    I dislike Ann Widdecombe, for her politics naturally but in the years i've observed her she has at least been consistent.
    Religion shouldn't influence a MP on his position, his/her constituents and voters should hold that influence.

    If we start up the road of Politicans spouting their religious beliefs every time they try and enter office we will end up like US. I don't want our politics to emulate them. Can you imagine simple things like Stem cells suddenly being such a ridiculous controversial battle?
