UK is third world because of Atheism?

I think we’ve gotten under their skin. If an advisor to the pope can say something like this with a straight face, then I think we are on the radar.

A senior Papal adviser has pulled out of the Pope's UK visit after saying arriving at Heathrow airport was like landing in a "Third World" country.

Cardinal Walter Kasper reportedly told a German magazine the UK was marked by "a new and aggressive atheism".

Is atheism a sign of a country being in labeled third world? What does third world mean?

the technologically less advanced, or developing, nations of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, generally characterized as poor, having economies distorted by their dependence on the export of primary products to the developed countries in return for finished products. These nations also tend to have high rates of illiteracy, disease, and population growth and unstable governments.

You know, I think Cardinal Walter Kasper may have deliberately insulted the UK. The bastard!
