Recent census result reveals that England is no longer a majority-Christian country and according to the Guardian newspaper, this has sparked calls for an end to the church’s role in parliament and schools.
Premier Christianity news also reported that “the proportion of people in England and Wales calling themselves Christian has dropped below half for the first time. The 2021 census data, released on Tuesday, suggests a huge increase in the number of people that do not identify as religious, compared to a decade ago.
Just 46.2 per cent of people consider themselves to be part of the Christian faith – in 2011, the figure was 59.3 per cent. Around 37.2 per cent said they had no religion at all, up by a quarter from the last results.”
