Dear faith diary…..

The BBC launched its online Faith Diary last week  with a poll suggesting that  two-thirds of people don’t want a secularist wipeout of religion in Britain. A ComRes poll of 1,045 people found 62% agreeing that religion has an important role in public life.

An extract from the findings reads: ‘Almost two-thirds of those questioned said the law “should respect and be influenced by UK religious values”, and a similar proportion agreed that “religion has an important role to play in public life”. A significantly greater proportion of the Muslims and Hindus polled (albeit in relatively small numbers) supported a strong role in public life for the UK’s essentially Christian traditional religious values.

The findings illustrate the growing alliance between people of different faith groups against the rolling back of religion in general in the public arena.’ See the poll by follwing this link http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7783563.stm
