Yeah I know I can TNNH. Hey, it's pretty late and I got pretty damn drunk last night.
My rather muddled point was that the majority doesn't reign supreme. I was trying to put across that just because the majority doesn't have heart disease means to say that the UK is a country without heart disease, or that money shouldn't be spent on combatting heart disease. Admittedly, the link between that and religion is extremely tenuous.
Nevertheless, just because the majority are Christian doesn't mean Britain is Christian. Britain is VERY diverse, any most other British people would disagree with Yyz's view that Britain is Christian. To call Saudia Arabia muslim is a lot more realistic as there is a lot less sepearation of church and state, not to mention laws and customs based heavily on Islam. Whereas a lot of Western laws are based on Christian beliefs, you'll also find that these beliefs are the core beliefs of most religions and cultures (murder is wrong etc etc) and in the West laws and customs don't go to the religious extent that they do in other countries.
I've forgotten the point of all this or how this really started, I really should get some sleep.
