Labour Faith Network

Just a quick plug for tonight's Labour Faith Network launch - 7pm on Monday 11 July in Committee Room 7 of the House of Commons.

Labour Faith Network is a new grouping of Labour party members from the major faiths, who want to see the party reconnect with faith communities across the UK. The chair is Cllr Abdal Ullah from Tower Hamlets, and the sponsor of the event is Gavin Shuker MP. Lord Glasman is the guest speaker.

They are a persuassive bunch as they've got me signed up as a supporter even though I'm an atheist!

Odd nomenclature. "Faith groups" tend to have little to do with faith and everything to do with dogma.

But, with friends like you, I guess they're damned anyway! ;)

At some point in time there has been a shift in the language from describing religious group to faith groups. The current description is misleading. Lets be clear. These groups are an assortment of people who believe in 'miracle' births; hear voices and are complicit in appalling abuses the world over in the name of a fictional construct. I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.
