Peter Hitchens: The Testimony of a Converted Atheist

"This country ceased to be Christian, in terms of genuinely, consciously, in an educated way believing in the Christian faith after the first world war.  People still continue to behave as if they are Christians. Society continues to function as if it is a Christian society for some time after its been gone.  We have been living in the last 40-50 years in the afterglow of Christianity.  Eventually though, eventually the darkness falls."
