In response to this letter in the Courier our friend, Alistair McBay, of the National Secular Society penned this response. It’s a classic of its type – I think we need to invent a new game called Secular Bingo – see how many ad hom, untrue and irrational arguments you can spot in this one letter?

As we prepare to head home I note the depressing news that Downfield primary school in my own city of Dundee has been the first to be awarded an LGBTI ‘silver award’ for their work in promoting ‘diversion and inclusion’.
