← Explaining the RDFRS UK/Ipsos MORI poll

The problem I think is that we're not explaining why it is wrong--i.e., undemocratic, illiberal or against equality--to give special privileges to religion or any democratic majority. At least 75% of UK Christians do seem to value equality over the tyranny of their particular religion, which is a huge relief for the rest of us.

But it doesn't matter if it's 54% majority Christian, or 72% majority Christian, special privileges to any majority or any minority is undemocratic and illiberal.
