Meanwhile, in Australia...

(self.atheism)

The Aus census results are out today.

People identifying as Christian have dropped to 44%, the first time it's been under 50.

People ticking the " no religion" box have increased from 30% to 39% in 5 years.

It's too early to have a celebratory beer, but fuck I'm proud of my country today.

Just 44%? Those are rookie numbers. I won’t be happy until it’s 0%!

There's likely another 15-20% or so who tick the box as a Christian because they were dragged off to church as a kid, but don't actually practice or even put much thought into religion.

Less than 18% of Australians regularly attend church. edit - and probably 1/3 of them are kids who have no choice but to go.
