Religion in Britain

If we are going to live peaceably in a multi-faith society, then tolerance of the beliefs of others will take us only so far. We have also to strengthen the secular framework of the state and ensure that no one is obliged to live according to the religious beliefs of others.

A recent BBC survey, which ranked Britain as being among the least religious of all nations, found that more than a quarter of Britons thought the world would be a safer place if no one believed in God. Very few people in other countries assented to the statement. It is a strange distinguishing characteristic but perhaps we should be proud of it.
