Secularism and its place in the modern world

Terry Sanderson asks if a secular world would be a better place to live in?

There is a lot of confusion about the meaning of the world ‘secularism’. Is it atheism? Is it anti-religious? Is it a political ideal or a philosophical concept? Is it desirable or undesirable? The confusion is understandable as the war between religious extremism and the defenders of the secular state hots up. There is misrepresentation and propaganda on both side.
Terry Sanderson tries to to cut through the tangle of conflicting definitions and come up with a modern concept of secularism, and discover whether the world would be a better place if secularism were the norm.”
Terry Sanderson is a journalist and author; he is President of the National Secular Society.
