The moral need to believe in the Resurrection?

In yesterday's Independent (9 April 2007), Bruce Anderson opined that "as many people as possible ought to believe in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ", as a counter to the threat posed by Islam. Reading this, I was at once reminded of the White Queen in Through The Looking Glass, who boasted that she was able to believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

It does seem odd to be told that one should believe things to order. How do you do it? In any case, although I agree with Anderson that "it would help if we had more confidence in our own values and traditions", it seems to me it is the values of the Enlightenment that we should be looking to.
