Whilst we’re on the subject of religion, I notice that His Grace Archbishop Cranmer has just launched a campaign to tell the state to mind it’s own business when it inquires as to what particular religious belief we may or may not observe. Now never being one to miss a passing band wagon and being keen on the state paying far less interest in what we might be doing as long as we’re not causing harm*. So as such I’m quite happy to plug His Graves “mind your own” campaign and hope that many other follow suit.
As he so rightly points out:
“Until the sate defines religion, it is not possible to tick ‘No religion’.”
So as we don’t know what they’re asking and as it seems the won’t be recognizing the force telling them to mind their own business seems a perfectly sensible reply.
There is of course the obligatory Facebook group
