"Thought for the Day" poll.

In an article in 'Radio Times' BBC presenter and atheist Evan Davis argues that it is time to open up the 'Thought for the Day' to non-believers.

At the end of the article there is a poll to allow readers to express their own opinions.

I think that seems to send the BBC a fairly clear message . . . . 


  1. I didn't know he was an atheist. And it would be about time seculars give their 2 cents in Thought of the Day. Ariane Sherine did, I think, but who else?

    Oh and, what is the point of Songs of Praise?

  2. 1) they did this poll some years ago and it rejected changing TotD, I understand. It's certainly much more honest of people if we now have such an huge majority for Truth!

    2) Songs of Praise has only two points in its favour - (a) some of the music is great and (b) some of the people are pretty. Oh yes, and I nearly forgot, it's obviously one of the things god created.
