    "These figures come on top of a Social Attitudes Survey which showed that by 2009, not only did those saying they have no religion outnumber Christians for the first time ever in the UK but that they were in an absolute majority at 51%, also for the first time."

    Does Britain offer political asylum to Americans who are sick half to death of the religious influence here?

      hmmm.. This was the finishing touch to /rosarubicondior, "Surely it's now time we disestablished the Church of England, ended it's tax-exempt status as a 'charity' in its own right and removed their senior clergy from the House of Lords, where they could only claim to represent a minority interest, even if they bothered to take soundings of the opinions of those who are still members of what is in reality, nothing more than a social club for people who still believe in fairy tales and magic."
      One could swim to Britain for religious relief, but given the economic situation in Europe, certainly a majority of Brits believe in fairy tales and magic.

          Dang! Emile beat me to it! lol

          Seriously, PQ - you don't know nothing 'bout no Bible thumpers. Come down South. We's gots some serous thumpin' goin' on.

          Actually, one of my daughters and I just had a discussion about this yesterday. I'm a Christian, but I don't try to force my religion on others. She preaches hard to everyone because she says the Bible tells us to do so. I think people should be aware of the choice of Christianity and other religions, but who in the U.S. doesn't know that Christianity is available IF they want it?? I told her to try to force someone or guilt someone into accepting Christianity is worthless. It has to be a personal choice.
