Professor Jim Al-Khalili is the new President of the British Humanist Association.
Here is an excerpt from an interview in The Newstatesman in conversation with Robin Ince :
For me, humanism is about making sure that we live in a secular society in which you are free to believe but that doesn’t impinge on the way society is run. Faith schools are something I’ve been very passionately against for many, many years. More important is to get across to those with a religious faith that they’re wrong about this arrogant attitude that you need God to be good, that you need religious faith to provide the moral compass.
