Britain has more people with "no religious affiliation" than ALL religious people COMBINED! ((53% of the population.)
Roll on the day in America when people can fearlessly say they have no religion.
People are funny. I was talking TV shows with a checkout today and named a few I watch. She thought I should try "Lucifer" which she says is very funny. I replied that we have a mythical character who is the ruler of Hell and he comes here to be a cop. Nope. She told me to give it a try anyway and I think the word "mythical" flew right over her head.
Most of the attendees at the mainstream churches are older very few young people attend, I think the carismatic happy clappy churches atract younger people but they are a smaller group. The church of england still holds a powerful position in society though. The Queen is head of the church and in the house of lords our second chamber in parliment there are 26 bishops there by right. The 26 most senior bishops in the church of england have an automatic seat in the house of lords
One thing that makes me smile is when on atheists groups people aske for advice in dealing with work collegues when they preach and invite you to church and because of the area they live in they can't just say i don't believe my answer is always the same sarcasm
Saw a UK comedy show. Where a lady was being hired for an office job as she had all the right stuff for the position and the staff were all excited. Until she mentioned she was Christian and everything went south. Hope the pendulum doesn't swing too unfairly the other way. I personal won't miss religion, go easy.
We Americans find it much too difficult to think for ourselves. It much easier to let political and religious leaders tell us what to think. I’m going to have a zipper installed in my head to make upgrades easier.
Seriously, good for Britain and drive on; don’t wait for us!
