Paul Minter, from Bexhill, has produced a mock-up of a Bible (currently unpublished), divided into ﬁve easy-to-read sections to help people access it more easily, it was reported in May. ‘I got the idea of producing the Bible in five paperback natural sections: the Law with 187 chapters, the History 249 chapters, Poetry 243 chapters, the Prophets 250 chapters, and New Testament with 260 chapters’. Paul, a carer for disabled and autistic children, added he was ‘passionate’ about getting people reading the Bible daily for the rest of their lives.
Atheist scientist Richard Dawkins denied in May that he is too aggressive in his views, and instead called on atheists to ‘take on some of the gentle decency of the Church of England’. He critiqued the problem of being labelled racist when one criticises Islam, condemning the persecution faced by many who choose to renounce Islam. ‘In the case of immigrants from Syria and Iraq I would like to see special preference given to apostates, people who have given up Islam. They are in particular danger’, said Dawkins.
