Hester Brown, Chair of South East London Humanist Group (SELHuG) argued the case for including humanists on the BBC’s flagship reflective slot, Thought for the Day.
Interviewed by Today presenter Mishal Hussein, alongside regular TFTD contributor Rev Dr Sam Wells of St Martins in the Fields, Hester said we all need good ideas on how to live, individually and as a society, and humanism is stuffed full of them.
The BBC is breaking the law and its own charter in failing to represent the half of British people who are not religious. Non-religious beliefs like humanism are seen as equal to religious beliefs, so why won’t the BBC name and include humanism? Why has it been air-brushed out of the national conversation?
