Subject: RE: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
As Dave has indicated many people put on paper that they are Christians. It's an easy option when many, like myself, were christened before they had a choice in the matter.
However of 33.2 million who claim to be Christians only 1.3 million could be bothered (Easter 2013) to attend a church on one of the biggest days in the church calendar. Just 4% ...... 96% rolled over and had another hours kip. Not very religious in my book.
If you take that 1.3 million who did attend church on a major feast day as part of the whole population of the UK you find that just 2% (two)of the population are practising Christians which means that 98% of the population are not.
2% is a very small minority and not one that can realistically be used to maintain that Britain is a Christian country.
