This thread is intended to be used to let people know about MPs and Lords who have demonstrated a commitment to secularism, or have argued in defence of secular principles (or just plain old common sense). Such people could well be religious.
Identifying these individuals will allow us to support them in future elections, especially in the light of the campaigns by religious groups to withdraw support for those parliamentarians who do not get behind their agenda.
I acknowledge that some of those who might be held up as 'secularist champions' may not perform adequately in other areas; it is, of course, up to individuals to decide for themselves to decide who to support or not support. This thread is merely meant to draw attention to those who support secularism.
There is a companion thread to for discussion of those who oppose secular interests
in the name of religious dogma.
