BBC Sunday Morning Live: Census 2021 & the rapid rise of the non-religious

I was a guest on Sunday Morning Live today to discuss the results of the 2021 Census and the rapid rise of the non-religious.

37% of the population in England and Wales ticked ‘No religion’ in the Census 2021 and last week, Census figures revealed that the non-religious outnumber Christians among all people aged 66 and below an astonishing and huge demographic shift, particularly considering the biased and leading nature of the Census question on religion. 

I was asked ‘Is Britain better off without god?’ This is of course an extreme way of putting the question. As a humanist, it’s simply the case that I believe in freedom of religion or belief, and that everyone should have the freedom to choose, or leave, faith behind.
