Time for "Thought" Slot to Open Up-Humanists


South East Humanist Group will be holding a demonstration outside Broadcasting House, home of the BBC Radio networks in London on Tuesday, October 9 at 4pm. According to the atheist magazine The Free4thinker, the group will calling on the BBC to open Thought for the Day to humanists and other non-religious thinkers. Thought for the Day has been used in the past as a slot on national radio where homophobic religious groups have been able to launch attacks on LGBT people. It is therefore of interest to gay, bi and trans people to see the slot opened out to people with different points of view. South East Humanists point out that the BBC is failing in its duties under the 2003 Communications Act to allow fair access to the airwaves for humanist and atheist belief systems.
