I find religious privilege baffling and frustrating so I am glad we have the National Secular Society who work hard to shine a light on it in an intelligent and reasonable way. I believe we can't have a pluralistic society without freedom of religious practice AND freedom of religious criticism so the NSS campaigns about free speech matter a great deal to me.
