Census Campaign

Discussion in 'Personal' started by tafkam, Feb 26, 2011.

    The British Humanist Association has started a campaign to encourage non-religious people to tick the 'No religion' box on the census when it comes, rather than opting for a "token" religious connection.
    I will be ticking "no religion", much as I ticked "none" ten years ago, but what will everyone else do?

    Because you should tell the truth.
     
  10. But where is the fun in that?

    It's not supposed to be fun!
     
  12. Ah, I did not realise that there was a "fun" version of the census too
     
  13. It's a really interesting question I reckon. For years I put a particular christian denomination as my religion on various forms, when really, I have no faith and follow no religion, I suppose it was a sort of safety net.
    I'll think carefully when completing my census form. I think I put none last time, but it was 10 years ago, and I can't really remember.

    Haha, that's one way of confessing a crime.
    It was yellow. I filled mine in on the floor as I recall.

    So it was a form that had to be posted off somewhere? Then I will have filled it in just don't remember, 10 yrs is a long time though isn't it?
    Why do I remember the one done 20 yrs ago though [​IMG]

    That's a good question. I don't really recall, butI presume so. I remember mine being delivered by a woman who looked to be in her 60s carrying a bag not unlike a paper boys. And I remember a colleague of mine was a collector who went round chasing people up, but presumably most of us just posted them back?

    I don't remember being chased for anything so I must have posted it or someone collected it later?

    You will have posted it, yes.

    I think mine was red though.... well, pinkish pale red.

    Do you think Jedi will be an option this time or will you have to write it in the 'other' box ?
