Fellow Patheos blogger Adrian Warnock has responded to my piece arguing that Christians are not persecuted and hated in the UK. The title of his post is “Coming out: Is “Evangelical” the new “Homosexual”?” I am tempted to respond to with a simple “no”. And, perhaps, “don’t be silly”.

I admit it – when I’m discussing with others, I want to win. But I don’t just want to defeat my opponents. I want to convince them. I yearn to persuade. And that passion, that fire, is no stronger than when I’m talking about Humanism. So it’s no surprise that, recently, a friend approached me after a panel I had spoken on and told me “James, you know what? You’re an evangelical. An evangelical Humanist.”
My friend was right.
