In this week's New Statesman: Godless Britain
This week's New Statesman -- Britain's current affairs & politics magazine -- is a special issue devoted to secularism, atheism and belief. In an exclusive interview, Jonathan Derbyshire and James Macintyre talk to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, about morality, human nature and capitalism. Elsewhere, Bryan Appleyard asks what would we lose if we tried to ditch religion altogether. Further: an interview with Ann Widdecombe, Mehdi Hasan's reflections on India and secularism and Alain de Botton on Auguste Comte, the man who tried to establish a religon for atheists.
