Usually I just read the articles but this time I can't resist to applaud the clarity and logic of the arguments.

In my native Russia, religion is now winning over vast numbers of people, and is finally to be introduced to schools (after a long struggle). This is a shame but it has its explanation in the history. For most of the XX century religious views (as any views) were suppressed in the communist USSR, and now people are anxious to rediscover their cultural roots, their past.

But in Britain? The very secular, very stable society, not disturbed by revolutions, enjoying the freedom of thought at all times... what is happening? Why is secularism there suddenly seems to be at the defence line?!
