Paul spoke to the questions Is there too much sex on TV? and Has religion any place in politics? He successfully took on the conservative (and Conservative) Christian contingent on their conflation of homosexuality with incest, and highlighted the need for politicians to be up-front about their religious beliefs.
Afterwards Paul said:
"I was proud to represent Labour Humanists and make our points heard on national TV. It was great to show on national television that there is a substantial body of members in the party that oppose issues like faith schools which are - in my view - a profoundly un-Labour policy, being for the few and not the many. I'm also really excited about the coming year ahead too - LH are really gearing up for a year of campaigning as never before on the issues that matter to us. I'm excited to be a part of it."
Faith schools, together with Bishops in the Lords, are both examples of religion institutionalised into politics and the State in the UK. Labour Humanist manifesto 2010 calls for the removal of both, and we will be holding events on these over the year ahead of the general election.
