How come he says god and not christ ?
I think your title is garbage and misleading, and I have never even heard of this guy. Who cares that he works at bbc. Its just another new outlet and these days news is just some average guy expressing my opinion. Kind of like what i am doing now.
You should create a post
"News has become societies pariah..." Whatever that means.
I remember one science teacher at my school used to ridicule the religious kids because they were taught creationism. How is that any different from a religious person ridiculing an atheist for not believing?
Isn't it already time to get rid of the fiction that is religions? all of them, not only Christianity. We should obey the morality laws Jesus taught,
Luke 14;26 If any [man] come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Matthew 10:34-36 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household
Colossians 3:22 22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh
Titus 2:9 9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;
Deuteronomy 20:13-14 13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword: 14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
1 Peter 2:18 18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
(NRSV) First Corinthians 7:20-21 Let each of you remain in the condition in which you were called. Were you a slave when called? Do not be concerned about it
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes
NRSV) First Timothy 6:1-6 Let all who are under the yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be blasphemed. Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful to them on the ground that they are members of the church; rather they must serve them all the more
(NRSV) Ephesians 6:5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ; not only while being watched, and in order to please them, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women,
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay [them] before me.
It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." Luke 16:17

They are beliefs, both atheists and religious people have them, if they didn't have them they couldn't argue with each other
Dude see if you can wrap your swede around this =
I am an atheist I do not believe there invisible man in the sky is real, this is a rejection based upon evidence or lack of.
I have opinions and opinions are easily changed whereas beliefs are almost always ingrained and very very difficult to change.
Not stamp collecting is not a hobby as sure as bald is not a hair colour.
I believe that my arse has a hole in it because the overwhelming evidence points to this conclusion although I have never seen this hole in my arse.
I am of the opinion that jesus is imaginary the lack of evidence leads me to this opinion so I choose not to believe that jesus is not imaginary.
Non belief is not a belief my friend
I am not religious. It has however scientifically been proven that Jesus was a real person and did in fact exist to live a life on this earth. He is not imaginary.

it's pretty obvious that the same tactics that resulted in the deaths of jews, christians, buddhists, hindus, muslims and gypsies in hitler's germany and stalin's russia are once again (blatantly) in active mode but now they also have the advantage of large groups of new atheists, who share the common frame of reference regarding issues like genocide, euthanasia, and science used to force their version of "utopia" on the rest of the planet. and in their own minds, they justify this activity because "sometimes you just have to clear out the bottom feeders and idiots" (in other words, their view is the only viable one and if you disagree, you're an idiot. you must first dehumanize before you can genocide)
