← RDFRS UK/Ipsos MORI Poll #1: How religious are UK Christians?

“When it comes to belief, practice or even the most elementary knowledge of the Bible, it is clear that faith is a spent force in the UK, and it is time our policy-makers woke up to that reality and stopped trying to impose beliefs on society that society itself has largely rejected." [Richard Dawkins]

I find myself wondering what Richard meant:

'It is clear that: faith (in general) is a spent force...'


'It is clear: that (particular) faith is a spent force...'

There is no punctuation here to guide us. We still have the rise of Islam in the UK to consider.
