Richard - 'gloves off time'

I'm not so sure that this approach is going to yield any better results. I'm a Brit living in New York this past 5 years and I would love to see some real progress here - it's depressing.
I see the problem as being that atheism is viewed as a negative campaign - it's about taking something away.

The answer is obviously education. Your Christmas Lectures galvanized my opinion when I was still at school. I think using a popular vehicle to reach the masses would be more effective - a movie, stand-up, music. I would love to see a drama series covering the history of the Roman church, with Constantine. Maybe even the period before this, just using historical evidence and nothing more.

The constant debate is entertaining, but let’s go mainstream.
