← Is Britain a Christian country?

You have to be careful there ^,

Many UK Christians will consider themselves christian cos they believe in god, and heaven, WILL go to church to get married and for their funeral, and will use Jesus as an example to try to follow in terms of kindness and morals.

This makes them Christian. You'd be wrong to argue otherwise.

Prof. Dawkins well understands this, and as you can see was trying to point out that the survey was not trying to say anything about people "not being proper Christians" but was instead simply trying to find out what they did believe, how they expressed their faith (if at all), how big a part of their lives it was, and their attitudes to various social issues.
