Don't talk about politics and religion...?

Yesterday, my friend William Whyte mentioned an article he wrote with his friend Giles Fraser (who regularly writes for the Church Times and whom I quoted here around the time the article was out). UnfortunatelyI managed to miss this in the pre-Easter workload but better late than never I hope!

In looking for the article itself, (which looks at the abandonment of apparent religious affiliation by left wing politicians) I also found various responses on websites.The two most interesting of them describe the authors as conspiracy theorists and "champions of the left" who are writing "as if Oliver Cromwell were in charge again and the public executions will begin tomorrow morning". What a review!

Of course getting criticism like that must mean they're doing something right... or should that be something left? ;oP
