Update 9th April 2017: The ‘on camera’ interview with Ahlulbayt TV lasted 90 minutes. I spoke about many of the points raised by the twenty supporters/members of Atheism UK who emailed me or left comments on this post. Thanks all, for your comments. If any ex-Muslims would like to give their views about the failures of organised religion, let me know and I’ll put you in contact with Ahlulbayt. The documentary will be aired on Sky 831 channel during Ramadan (27th May – 25th June 2017) – I’ll add the precise date when known.
Atheism UK will be interviewed by the Islamic channel Ahlulbayt TV (Sky 831 channel) this Wednesday morning (22nd March 2017).
I’d be interested in any comments (today or tomorrow, 20-21st March) from Atheism UK members and supporters about “What are the failures of organised religion?”
Atheism UK was invited to be in the audience. Chris Street Atheism UK President attended the 8th January 2017 show. The topic “Would today’s ‘wise men’ believe in God?” was discussed for 20 minutes.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Richard Green on 23rd October 2016, aged 62.

‘Voice of Islam’ radio
Sometimes Atheism UK Council Members get requests to speak on radio and in University debates (I’ve spoken twice at the Cambridge Union and will probably speak at Bath University this November). We also speak to schools about atheism – we will be speaking to an independent school in central London in September. This time we’ve been invited to talk to Voice of Islam radio about the ‘Meaning of Life’.

Can Atheists win with kindness? by Matthew Connolly.
Chris Street (President, Atheism UK) received this July 28th 2016 email from Matthew Connolly about how atheists should patiently explain why idea of God doesn’t make much sense:
