More interesting are the demographics. Worth a look if you think that the UK is swamped by foreigners called Mohammed who are instituting sharia law because they outnumber regular ol' white British folk.

b..bu..but.. 4 MILLION muhammeds invaded us through conning the naive government into believing that their country was going to murder them. Well, In saying that, if your country is going to stone you to death you must have done something to deserve it. Ahmahduneitryte?


/likes the fact that there's only ~500 people in the whole of the UK that identify themselves as free-thinkers.

Proud to say that the same census found my city of Norwich to be the most godless in England. We had quite a few people putting down that their religion was heavy metal (seventy or so) and over a hundred saying they're Jedis.

\no religion
\\hate star wars too much to joke about being a Jedi

Beware of the dork side. Once you step down the dork path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will!
You will live in your mother's basement. You will never kiss a girl. The closest you will ever come to meeting a woman will be porn on the Internet!
Don't cross over to the dork side.

Very interested to see that 6,242 people put Heavy Metal as their religion. I love that.

Meanwhile, wiccans are down to 11,766 from close to a hundred thousand just fifteen years ago. Worst setback they've had there in a couple of thousand years.

There's a New Testament/Old Testament joke in there somewhere, as anything post-Empire clearly isn't canon.

"It turns out the number of Jedi has more than halved over the last decade, with 176,632 in the latest figures, down from 390,000 in 2001."

My God! Anakin's killing the younglings again!

/either that or 214,000 of them had sex

I think that Jedi is a philosophy along the lines of Buhdism. Technically Buhdism is not really a relgion. But people treat it as such.

Whether you're a scifi nerd or not, you can still subscribe to a philosophy.

I'm athiest. I'm also an ordained minister. The philosophy of the Universal Life Churchis simply "Believe in Doing the Right Thing". Nice philosophy, in my view.

The sad thing is that someone may indeed be a refugee from a place where they would have been killed for being the wrong variety of muslim...and still be willing to kill their own daughter because she talked to a boy. The two are not, alas, mutually exclusive.

I loved the first season of that show. Then the second season started getting all abstract and I lost interest.

That was snark. I'm actually an immigrant myself. I just have pale skin ,blue eyes, blonde hair, red beard. It's just when I talk I get the mild xenophobia.

I actually had one guy asking me, whilst I was working, "So, WTF are you doing in my country?"

"Stealing your jobs, and farking your women" was my reply.
