I am currently struggling desperately to contain my joy over the upcoming census. Boxes to tick! Page after page of questions to complete! It's a list obsessive's dream. There was actually census in the late nineties that my brother and I fought over filling in. We were both at Uni. This time round, I have more reason for giddiness than usual.
My first chance to mark 'NoReligion'. I shall be ticking that electronic-eCensus box with much glee.
Please, follow the urgings of the nice peoples from the Atheist Foundation of Australia. I know that many of you are nominally of one religion of another, but most likely wouldn't know where your nearest god club is. If, like most people I know, you are religious in concept rather than practice, then please, please, tick 'No Religion'. Otherwise you are giving Fred Nile and the Family First whackos the mistaken belief and the false ammunition that a sizeable portion of the Australian people support their crazed right-wing agenda.
