Editor of IHEU’s 2013 Freedom of Thought report, Bob Churchill

The BBC covered the IHEU Freedom of Thought report this week, as part of a segment on prejudice against atheists in Egypt and around the world.

IHEU’s Bob Churchill, editor of the 2013 report, was interviewed in the studio to discuss the difficulties of speaking out as atheist in countries with widespread social prejudice or legal discrimination against the non-religious.

He spoke alongside  Lola Tinubu of the London Black Atheists who discussed the difficulty of turning from evangelical Christianity to atheism, including how some friends and family were “very sad, very upset, and some deeply offended”.

The video is below and a blog about the interview can be found on the Freedom of Thought Report website.
