BBC Invites Humanists to the Table

Here’s a welcome bit of news: The BBC will be including a Humanist in their newly formed Standing Conference on Religion and Belief. This is apparently the result of a 2003 change in the codes policing the BBC as a government entity. It’s nice to see that, six years later, they’re finally doing what should have been done even BEFORE the code were in place.  Better late than never.

Fear not, though–the move is already meeting with Christian criticism:

“This is like asking [known evironmentalist critic] Jeremy Clarkson to sit on a committee responsible for making programmes about the environment.”
