In which case you must have thick skinned arse cheeks.

Who are "they"?

Either trying to be serious or laughing at you, it remains the same. You seem incapable of seeing religion as something to do with just those interested or compelled by it and see rational people as those who have in their lives given religion some thought. Years ago you may have had a point as families indulged in ritual, school assemblies were religious in their format and you tended to accept its place in society without thought. Or at least that was the situation around here.

We are two or three generations in some areas beyond religion having any impact on life. (Add a couple of generations for Doncaster. ) It may pain you to know that most people in The UK either aren't exposed to religion as children or dismiss it as irrelevant once their balls drop.

Note the word irrelevant. Not evil, not to be challenged, not to be overthrown in some bloody crusade. Just irrelevant.

Today I read of yet another "if we have women bishops I will have to resign as a vicar" story. Bye then.

Most normal well adjusted people with a modicum of intelligence can't sign up to institutional misogyny, organised homophobia and promoting people in the same communities as equal or lower to others. That is far different to asserting an alternative.

Not having an imaginary friend is not an alternative to having one. It means you aren't in the market for considering one in the first place.

Please for once, for crying out loud, get that into your thick skull.
