The 2011 census forms have now started to be mailed out. In fact mine just arrived this morning. Although it is not due to be completed until 27th March, I am saying this in advance….
I know I live in a country that has an established Christian Church. I know that I was baptized into that church at the age of 5. I know that I live in a culture which sees itself as predominantly Christian. I do not believe in god, Jesus of the Holy Spirit. I do not believe they exist. I am NOT a Christian. I don’t believe it so I will NOT tick the Christian box. I am ticking “No Religion”. Please, if you don’t believe it then don’t tick despite any possible “cultural background”. Don’t believe it? Don’t tick it! Tick “No Religion” if you don’t believe. I think I’ve laboured the point enough!
Check out the Don’t Believe It? Don’t Tick it! Campaign, and remember this applies to much much more than the census!
