More than half of UK population is non-religious
I hope for a world where religion is no more influential in society than a hobby like knitting or trainspotting.
I could tell you of a couple of trendy clubs in Cairo if you want the bellydancers and the middle eastern vibe. And lots of Stella.
Thank God... or lack there of!
sbf: Imagine a world where no one was religious. Would we really want that?
I would, absolutely yes.

"Religion poisons everything" (Christopher Hitchens).
"Religion is a snare and a racket" (Joe "Judge" Rutherford).
Wherever religion has taken root, taking umbrage over perceived or actual insulting and/oroffensive language (i.e., blasphemies) is never far away.
Humans maim and kill without the backing of religious edicts. But, when they have the backing of religious edicts, man do they maim and kill with gusto.
In the case of the more religiously pacifist, the maiming and killing take on a spiritual and emotional bent.
I wonder how recently the scale was tipped, and where we're at in Canada and the US?
