Religion Is ‘The New Social Evil’

I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘new’ but pollsters in the UK asked 3,500 people what they thought were the worst aspects of modern society and discovered religion was high on the list. The results were very reassuring… for the UK, that is.

The researchers found that the “dominant opinion” was that religion was a “social evil.”

Though poverty and drug abuse are higher on the list (and rightly so), it seems Britain is fed up with religion. Other issues expressed by the 3,500 polled included family breakdown, young people’s behavior and fears over immigration.

“Britain has had it with religion,” said Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society.
