Great Britain Is Slowly Ditching Christianity

•, Adam Taylor
 According to the census results, 4 million less Brits considered themselves Christian in 2011 than in 2001. The BBC also notes that the number of Brits who describe themselves as having no religion is up from 15% in 2001 to 25% in 2011, representing a 67% relative rise.

The British Humanist Association say that by their own calculations, these census results show that Christians would be a minority in the UK by September 2018. 

"This is a really significant cultural shift," BHA Chief Executive Andrew Copson said. "In spite of a biased question that positively encourages religious responses, to see such an increase in the non-religious and such a decrease in those reporting themselves as Christian is astounding.
