The least religious city in England and Wales

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...medium=twitter

It's Norwich:

Quote:
But the 2011 Census has revealed Norwich had the highest proportion of respondents in England and Wales reporting "no religion".

The city's figure was 42.5% compared with a figure of 21.1% for England and Wales as a whole.
...and people call us backwards!

Also, lol at the local Bishop trying to put spin on the situation:

Quote:
The Bishop of Norwich, the Right Reverend Graham James, was sceptical about the census' findings.

"Norwich is a city of churches. They are around every corner," he said.

"It's also a centre of vibrant Christianity today.

"The cathedral is seeing hundreds of worshippers every day during December and will welcome thousands on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day."

“It seems doubtful that Norwich is a less religious place than anywhere else in the country”

He said there were many other large and growing churches in Norwich of all denominations.

"So it seems doubtful that Norwich is a less religious place than anywhere else in the country," he said.

"It would not have above-average churchgoing rates if that was the case.

"But it may be a place where the vibrant presence of the churches means that people have to make up their minds about faith more definitely, and that's no bad thing."
Typical of a militant religious figurehead, trying to use faith, bias and speculation to argue against solid facts.

Meanwhile, this would be the time to use your best inbreeding jokes...

I'd love to here what English people think of some of the hick towns that exist in America.

I wonder how many bellends put down Grant Holt as their religious view.

Re: The least religious city in England and Wales

Most people are still religious?

I find that hard to believe.

Not tonight it fucking isn't. A fucking disgraceful and shambolic acceptance of defeat.
