The Anglican priest, George Pitcher, writes in today’s Telegraph some truly bizarre guidance for folks to consider when filling out the 2011 census forms in the UK. As you might expect, its all focused on the Infamous Question 10 … the religious one. Apparently, according to him, the British Humanist Association is not being “fair” because it is about to launch its campaign to stop respondents to the ten-yearly national Census on 27 March saying they’re religious when thy are not.
To that I say WTF … the BHA are not being “fair”??
He also claims that the New Atheists have been beside themselves with rage since the 2001 Census, when 72 per cent of people in England described themselves as Christian. Now that deserves a second WTF … rage?
He appears to be simply making this stuff up, but then when you consider that his full-time career involves the propagation of a superstitious fantasy for which there is not one jot of evidence, I guess I should not be surprised to find him making more stuff up.
