So, I was down the pub (the Castle) and after a few pints the conversation turned to religion, and the assertion that England (joint with some other country we couldn’t name; I went for Iceland, Andy for Denmark) was the most godless in the world (in some unclear sense involving religious belief) and that the least godly city in England was Cambridge, joint with… Brighton I think.
Bit of a bland subject I know, but does anyone else have anywhere less godly to propose? Not, of course, in the sense of god-forsaken, we all know that is (picks random city that no-one likes).
Just to keep things dull and boring, my contribution to the “Ireland has got less religious as its grown richer, but the US despite being grossly money-fat has piles of wacky christian folk” debate was the idea that you can make piles of dosh by being a pastor in the US, but not in Ireland. Comments?
[Update: thanks for the comments. This survey also applies, but doesn’t support my assertion. Or rather my friends assertion, since I shall now distance myself from it :-) -W]
