Secularism v Religion in National Affairs - Post-Warsi Discussion on BBC Newsnight
Prof Richard Dawkins
Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali
Ruth Gledhill, Religious Affairs Editor, The Times
Newsnight anchor: Gavin Esler
This discussion results from recent articles in national newspapers by Sayeeda Warsi, the co-chairman of the UK Conservative Party, and a tax-payer-funded visit by her to the Vatican.
I suspect Warsi, a Muslim, is using her position to further her personal agenda, viz to promote religion in national affairs, including government policy.
She trended all day on twitter (London), with the overwhelming majority of tweeters expressing very strong opposition to her views.
She might just find that her strategy backfires.
