Atheism v religion debate moving on from stalemate, says archbishop
Rowan Williams says in Easter sermon that after years of attacks on religion there are 'signs that the climate is shifting'
The high tide of "new atheism" may have passed, the archbishop of Canterbury has said in his Easter sermon. Rowan Williams said the atheism v religion debate appeared to be moving on from what he called "a pointless stalemate".
"Recent years have seen so many high-profile assaults on the alleged evils of religion that we've almost become used to them; we sigh and pass on, wishing that we could have a bit more of a sensible debate and a bit less hysteria. But there are a few signs that the climate is shifting ever so slightly," he said at Canterbury cathedral.

so i guess that we can expect to see churches filling up with believers, more people becoming priests and so on?
