Religious do not have monopoly on virtue, Queen tells synod



The Guardian has an interesting article on the Queen and her perspective on Atheism, Theism and morality.


People of faith do not have a monopoly on virtue as British society was now "more diverse and secular", the Queen told the Church of England today in an address to its governing body.
Speaking at Church House, central London, she told members of General Synod that believers and atheists were equally able to contribute to the prosperity and wellbeing of the country.
The Queen, who is supreme governor of the Church of England, said: "In our more diverse and secular society, the place of religion has come to be a matter of lively discussion. It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue and that the wellbeing and prosperity of the nation depend on the contribution of individuals and groups of all faiths and none."

Pretty interesting words coming from the Queen of England who is technically head of the Church of England. More information and background can be read up at the Guardian.
