Help get humanists on Thought for the Day

From Andrew Copson of the BHA (fully endorsed by by us):

"We seem to be getting somewhere with our campaign to have humanist voices included on Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’. Yesterday BHA member Lord Harrison of Chester raised the point on the Today programme and this morning, Jonathan Bartley of Ekklesia (the Christian think tank with which the BHA has worked on issues like creationism), himself a contributor to Thought for The Day, made the case for including humanist contributors.

John Humphries this morning asked people to email in if they wanted humanist thinkers included in Thought for the Day so please take the time to contact the Today programme on and make the case for non-religious thinkers to be included! We know that many of you sent emails in support of Joan Bakewell when she too appeared (on Radio 4’s Feedback) to argue for the inclusion of humanists – if you didn’t then, please email now! If you did, please email again!
