Religious believers feel nervous about expressing their faith at work – either by wearing symbols or talking about religion. They're worried they'll be mocked by secular bullies. And employers aren't aware of the situation. Or don't care.

That's the implication of a new ComRes report, which I'm discussing on this week's Holy Smoke with my new co-presenter Cristina Odone.

As you'll hear, we don't agree. She thinks religion is becoming the love that dare not speak its name in the workplace. I think we're in danger of being dragged into a PC grievance culture.

There are also some very sharp observations from Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of the Leon restaurant chain. Anyway, here's our argumentative podcast. Don't miss it – and subscribe on iTunes!
