A report by The All Party Parliamentary Group on Religion in the Media is calling for greater understanding of religious beliefs amongst journalists and reporters.

The report ‘Learning to Listen’ is aiming to counter the misrepresentation of religious people and beliefs that it says has become widespread across the British media.

The Group said that journalists must be able to question freely and criticise religious beliefs but ‘we all deserve a media which recognises the importance of religious belief, and has the confidence to report on, interrogate, question and discuss it’.
