This afternoon’s Beyond Belief on Radio 4 had people seriously arguing that children could be possessed by witchcraft.
Yesterday, too, we had the latest disturbing blasphemy case from Pakistan.
These all follow hard on the heels of the Pussy Riot case.
I think religious freedom is a good thing, but can we have too much of a good thing? Of course, the answer to that is not to deny people the freedom they want; it is to educate them so they no longer want that.
