BHA gives support for Mayor who has dropped council prayers

The British Humanist Association (BHA, the national charity representing and supporting the non-religious, campaigning for an end to religious privilege and to discrimination based on religion or belief, has quite rightly written to the Mayor of Enfield to express their support for her plan to replace compulsory prayer sessions before council meetings with poetry readings.

The move, criticised as “anti-religious” by one local councillor, has been made to “support and encourage the arts.”

The Mayor has made a move in the right direction. However forget the poetry. It's not an Arts Council it's a Town Council. They should get straight on with the task they were elected for.
