Speaker: Grace Davie, chair in the Sociology of Religion, Director of the Centre for European Studies, University of Exeter
...
Professor Davie, thank you so much for coming.
GRACE DAVIE: I'm delighted to be here.
...
MS. DAVIE: Let's start by taking apart secular, secularity, secularism and secularization.
...
MS. DAVIE: To me, the presence of Islam in Europe is not simply another religious choice; it's a catalyst of change.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think it would depend on whether you are freed up to go to university.
...
MS. DAVIE: Changing ideas come from the elite or intellectual segment of a society: This is maybe where change will come.
...
MS. DAVIE: I don't think anybody wants to force movement on any curve. I certainly wouldn't.
...
MS. DAVIE: Soccer, well that is football. (Laughter.) I mean soccer.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think I probably misled you.
...
MS. DAVIE: The point is that the major source of knowledge for young people about religion is school.
...
MS. DAVIE: I can't think of a Billy Graham and a Rick Warren.
...
MS. DAVIE: The nearest you get is Holy Trinity Brompton and Nicky Gumbel and the Alpha course.
...
MS. DAVIE: "We don't do God. Yes.
...
MS. DAVIE: Yes.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think you're right, but not wholly right, if you see what I mean.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think that's hard to say, but go back and look at his record on Rushdie, which was extremely revealing to me, as to where he drew the line.
...
MS. DAVIE: Mormons might be offended by that.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think they were -
...
MS. DAVIE: Well, I would give more credit to Ian Hislop for reading that really very sensitively.
...
MS. DAVIE: We have a history of a state church.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think there is a big difference between whether you work on a contracting-in or contracting-out model. You're working on a contracting-in model.
...
MS. DAVIE: I'd say two things about the European Constitution.
...
MS. DAVIE: Funnily enough, I don't see it among cathedral goers. I see it rather in the average parish.
...
MS. DAVIE: Not in cathedrals.
...
MS. DAVIE: It's becoming more and more common that the cathedrals have a girls' choir as well as a boys' choir, and there's a heated debate about whether you really can hear the difference in the voices.
...
MS. DAVIE: Just on your first question, I didn't think I'd find the word vicarious in an analysis of American religion, but Will Herbert uses it about Jews in America.
...
MS. DAVIE: Yes, somebody found it for me and sent it to me. He used it in a slightly different sense because there's no question of the state paying for religion, but there is the notion of a group doing religion on behalf of the wider community.
...
MS. DAVIE: I think that is one of the most crucial questions.
...
MS. DAVIE: It's not all that resonant.
...
MS. DAVIE: Protests are one-off - they're like pilgrimages.
...
MS. DAVIE: It's a minority issue.
...
MS. DAVIE: Where I would see the connection is with the younger generation that I talked about earlier who are seeing a "God in me" and the notion of a soul and this kind of thing.
...
MS. DAVIE: I don't think we're going to agree on that. I'd see it as a quasi or "as if" religion.
...
MS. DAVIE: To turn it round the other way: Why is there a new religious right in America and not in Europe?
...
MS. DAVIE: Obviously these things are relative.
...
MS. DAVIE: One of the most obvious differences again is that Americans use their courts in a very different way from Europeans.
...
MS. DAVIE: I'm just wondering whether I've explained this badly or whether I'm not hearing you right.
...
MS. DAVIE: With regard to the first point when you were referring to Adrian's comment, I don't know which way we should put the question.
...
MS. DAVIE: Yes, I mean the two things were leaning on each other, and when one fell, the other did too.
...
MS. DAVIE: The Spanish case is difficult because it's so colored by its history.
...
MS. DAVIE: No. It's absolutely different, and I'm glad you asked that because it needs to be clarified.
...
MS. DAVIE: I'm glad you've asked that as well.
...
Let's thank Professor Davie.
