Oh, dear. I don't think the Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Hindus and non-believers got that email.

You mean the church Henry VIII set up so he could keep marrying and executing women until he had a son?

Oh yes! We all believe Jesus was the son of a man who single-handedly made the universe and was born of a celibate couple and could perform conjuring tricks that could rival modern performances!

Perhaps there remains some benign utility in the tradition of prefacing a country by its predominate religious representation. However, something in me thinks it's almost as distasteful as Prof. Dawkins' objection to labeling children the faith of their parents.

Well, and in some cases, it's just plain wrong.

Guess we should finally stop naming the days of the week after pagan gods then.

(Sunday -- Sun's day, Monday -- Moon's day, Tuesday -- Tiu's day, Wednesday -- Woden's day, Thursday -- Thor's day, Friday -- Freya's day, Saturday -- Saturn's day)

Then it must be ok to let the children play with those pedophile priests in the back rooms of the church.
