Kate Smurthwaite Responds to a Nun Who Claims Atheists Have ‘Faith’

The BBC recently held a televised conference in which 100 women from different backgrounds and faiths were invited to discuss pertinent issues.

Atheists were represented by the excellent Kate Smurthwaite, who had to respond to the age-old charge that she, too, had “faith”:

Smurthwaite had a tough role to play: Not only did she have to dismantle the ridiculous argument, she also had to promote feminism and equality alongside women who belong to misogynistic faiths that they still want to defend. But just as she did two years ago, Smurthwaite’s response here was polite but effective.
