BBC Suffolk – Belief in a secular society
A new feature on BBC Radio Suffolk’s website by Andrew Woodger includes references to Humanism.
More people have been going to church in Suffolk, but the diocese has concerns that it may be a blip in the face of long-term decline. However, Muslims say they’re buoyant in the county, as do the humanists who don’t have any faith in a god.
We’re constantly hearing that religion, particularly the Christian Church of England, is in decline with fewer bums-on-pews. At the same time there’s been the dramatic success of books such as Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion and claims that popular films/books such as Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass, or even Harry Potter, are spreading an anti-religious message.
