Ruth Kelly is a member of Opus Dei. Because doesn't hide her faith, and isn't an ironic kinky freak, she’s being called her an extremist, because it's not the critics' flavor of extremism. Americans got over this intolerant crap in 1960.
Old Europe is only 45 years behind in tolerance and ethics.
Unlike her critics, she's being honest and disclosing who it is you get when her government appoints her to a meaningful position. Are her detractors willing to tell us the virtues they try to live by like she tries to?
