Viva the Age of Reason!

Anthony Andrews sums up in a piece in The Guardian today what I’ve been saying for over a year: human rights and religious interests are incompatible. Not only that, but that repugnant views should not be excused simply because they are deeply felt religious beliefs rather than political ideology.
