Radio dada

You probably missed it, because you are busy people, but yesterday I was on the radio. Mr Simon Pound of 95bFM invited me to speak about the Draft Statement on Religious Diversity. It was all good fun. I would have told you in advance but it was at rather short notice. Sorry.

Apropos the Statement, here is the revised version, the result of the Interfaith Forum in Hamilton. Make of it what you will. At least it recognises that 37% of the population have ‘no religion’ and that our numbers are growing. Still it gives the impression that New Zealand is a land of the devout and does not mention that only a minority of those who profess religious beliefs worship regularly.
