In a piece entitled, “Julie Burchill, a lion among Christians,” in the Guardian.
I’m glad you’re writing about your Christian faith. Yours is the sort of voice that will help to shake things up a bit, make people question some of the media cliches surrounding religion. (Cliches exemplified by the grim reality show Make me a Christian.) You’re not known for piety, and that’s a good thing. The majority view is that religious believers are timid conformists – alas there’s some truth to this, but you’re right to say that the smuggest conformists of all are the atheists. As I’ve said here before, I think their smugness is rooted in intellectual cowardice.
