The God question: A tale of two adverts

Alistair McBay examines the PR campaign behind an educational resource that seeks to bring creationism and intelligent design into the science classrooms of Scotland.

NSS Speaks Out

We were quoted worldwide on the Holy See's public examination at the UN after our comments were picked up by the AFP news agency. Terry Sanderson also discussed religion and politics on LBC, and religion in the workplace on national and local BBC radio after Marks & Spencer accommodated a Muslim workers request not to sell alcohol and pork. Campaigns manager Stephen Evans discussed free speech and the need to reform Clause 1 on a number of local BBC radio stations.
