Chris Street, President of Atheism UK spoke to Voice of Islam radio in August. Today we received another request to talk to them tomorrow (Thursday 17th November) between 4 – 5pm. This time the topic is ‘Human v Religious Rights’. As members & supporters of Atheism UK, we would like to get your views. Please comment below (or send an email) with your response to their questions – we might just quote you!
“Hi Atheism UK
I am contacting you on behalf of ‘Voice of Islam’ a brand new station that airs on DAB and web stream (http://voiceofislam.co.uk/live/).
I represent the Drive Time show, which airs daily 4pm-6pm UK time. During the show we like to discuss current affairs and various other topics. We try to get as many opinions aired on the show as possible- we like to hear all sides of the story. We will be looking at the rights of people vs rights of religion on Thursday 17 November 2016 between 4pm to 5pm GMT
I was reading your website and would love to hear your views regarding the changing faces of religion in the UK. These are the questions I would like to pose:
1. Tell us a little bit about why you choose not to believe in a God?
2. Why do you think numbers of atheists are rising
3. Don’t you think it is important that we hold onto British values, which include the fact that this is a Christian country?
4. In your opinion can one believe in science and reason as well as God? Why not?
On our show, we want to assess just how compatible religion is with society nowadays. We are a show that likes to present both sides of the argument, it would be great to hear from you. We don’t engage in debate, but like to discuss different angles and opinions. I really hope we can get you on board for this show. The interview is live over the phone and will take 5-10 minutes.
Looking forward to hear from you.
