Royal assent

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Attending the Church of England General Synod yesterday, you might have thought the Queen, in her role as Anglican head honcho, would be too busy worrying about parochial matters (the Church's continuing implosion, bishops laying into her family and the "event we shall not mention") to spare a thought for we merry godless. But in her speech at Church House, she took time, while heaping praise on the religious, to point out that atheists are alright too:
"In our more diverse and secular society, the place of religion has come to be a matter of lively discussion. It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue and that the wellbeing and prosperity of the nation depend on the contribution of individuals and groups of all faiths and none."
Well, it's nice to be noticed. Perhaps now we can move ahead with plans for that established state atheist movement. That is what we all want, isn't it?
