The Prime Minister’s assertion that Britain is a Christian country risks dividing society, claim 50 liberals including Sir Terry Pratchett and Dan Snow

‘We wish to object to his repeated mischaracterising of our country as a “Christian country” and the negative consequences for our politics and society that this view engenders.’

‘Repeated surveys, polls, and studies show most of us as individuals are not Christian in our beliefs or our religious identities and at a social level, Britain has been shaped for the better by many pre-Christian, non-Christian, and post-Christian forces.

‘We are a plural society with citizens with a range of perspectives and a largely non-religious society. To constantly claim otherwise fosters alienation and division in our society.’ –Source
