Great Britain is the largest island of the British Isles. It is politically divided into three parts; England, Scotland and Wales. All three, with Northern Ireland, make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Once the greatest nation in the world (from about 1815 to 1915), Great Britain has been nearly destroyed by atheism and socialism from within. Today she is a mere shadow of her former self. Illustrations its pathetic current state include:

  • A Christian physician has been fired "for emailing prayer to colleagues. ... He was finally dismissed after he queried the order not to use religious language in professional communications 'verbal or written.'"[1]
  • A Devout Christian nurse was forced to resign after an employment tribunal ruled that National Health Service bosses were correct to ban her from wearing a necklace with a small crucifix which she considered to be a personal faith item [2]
  • In the land of Shakespeare and Dickens an erotic novel is now the best selling book in Britain since records began. 50 Shades of Grey by EL James is the story of a virginal heroine who falls for a bondage-loving billionaire and features gratuitous sex scenes throughout. [3]

Population of the island of Great Britain is estimated at 60.5 million in 2010, which is 97% of the population of the UK.[4] The island has an area of approximately 88,745 square miles[5] - about the size of Minnesota - making it the 9th largest island in the world. Topography of the island is characterized by rolling countryside and scattered forests of low elevation in the South and East, with larger hills and mountains in the North and West.
