UK is growing up: Younger adults are less religious

From the annual British Social Attitudes survey:

In 1983, 31% claimed no religious affiliation, now it's 50%, and, as the report says: "This change - which is likely to continue - can be explained by generational replacement, with older, more religious, generations dying out and being replaced by less religious generations. There is little evidence that substantial numbers find religion as they get older."

This is obviously good news, but with undue deference still given to religious ideas, the Faith School Menace and, well, just look at the BHA's campaign list, there is still much to do to get a secular state.
