    New spanish prime minister is an atheist

    http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progres...without-bible/
    Spain’s new Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez is an atheist, and the the first Spanish Prime Minister to be sworn into office without a Bible or crucifix.

    Sánchez, leader of the Socialist party, was sworn in Saturday as Spain’s Prime Minister, a day after scandal-plagued political rival Mariano Rajoy was removed from office in a no-confidence vote.
    Interesting.

    A step forward, but given the general level of atheism in Europe, seriously overdue.

    Theists are massively over represented in European (and indeed, Australasian) politics, compared to their numbers in the populations being governed.

    Trump is NOT an atheist. His god is Trump.

    Well, if he's the god of the Trump family, it does explain why Ivanka is always on her knees before him.

    What makes you think Trump is an atheist?

    That makes him probably the second most famous extant Spanish atheist, after Fernando Alonso.
