T13 Responses – Audio Transcript


I knew from earlier tracks in this project that religion was likely to be a hot issue for some of you. And so, indeed, it proved.

Your responses revealed a degree of scepticism about religion – hostility even – and certainly a range of doubts about the inter-relationship between faith and human rights.

So this has taken a while for me to compose. It’s produced a lot of further thoughts in my mind as I’ve responded to what you’ve had to say. And I’ll be interested in the extent to which you feel that the balance is now struck in a way that you find agreeable – between human rights on the one hand and what I suppose we can loosely describe as faith, or religion, on the other.
