Hmm, well, the vastly overwhelming 'religion' in the UK is actualy
atheist/agnostic, but *christened* catholic or protestant. *Most*
Brits don't go to church regularly, and hold no strong religious
beliefs. Church attendance is poor, and falling. Religion is nowhere
near as important an issue here as in other parts of the world, and
is of little or no political influence. (NI apart, which most brits
don't see as a religious issue anyway, no flames please)
