The cover story looks at how Science Fiction on television (like Star Trek, Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica) deals with themes of Humanism vs religion.
There are also stories about ‘The Festival of Blight’ (where religious fundamentalists protested outside the House of Lords in opposition to the inclusion of gay people in anti-discrimination legislation) and a report back from the recent Faith, Homophobia & Human Rights conference, including the text of a speech by Ali Hilli who details the latest atrocities against LGBTs in Iraq by Islamist militias.
Keith Porteous-Wood, executive director of the National Secular Society explains why secularism is good for everyone – even the religious. There is also an op-ed from Humanist author Barbara Smoker on free-speech, respect and religion.
There are also details about the GALHA Film Festival starting this weekend.
