Nice one.

I hope neopaganism starts to get a mention in school RE classes; the creation of a new religious movement is a fascinating enough phenomenon in it's own right to be worth the study.

Where's Oak King? Mind you, I thinkhe's a Wiccan.

I don't want any religions to be recognised by the state, but if they have to be then the more the better.

Indeed I am a Wiccan. Interestingly I have been approached by my local school to introduce neo paganism to the RE classes.

Oak - I imagine that if you had come into my school, it would have brightened up the rather dry RE lessons no end

Let us know how you get on!

It would be good to see RE lessons in school covering a wider variety.

Oh I shall but I have to admit to finding the whole thing rather terrifying.

Why?

At most, only one religion is the correct one.  Why should the followers of all the incorrect ones get official recognition just because they act out their fantasies more than others?

The UK Borders Agency is about to publish an electronic version of their asylum support form.  The religion drop down list has more than 100 religions in it.  Some of them are:

Agnostic
Ancestral Worship
Animist
Anthroposophist
Atheist
Black magic (yes, really!)
Deist
Druid (of course)
Goddess
Heathen
Humanist
Lightworker
New Age Practitioner
Occultist
Not religious
Religion not given
Religion unknown
Satanist
Secularist

There are also about 50 different versions of Christianity and quite a lot of different versions of Islam, Hindu , Judaism and Buddhism

But until such time as we can work out which, if any, is the correct version, as far as legal recogition goes it has to be a level playing field - either none of them or every man jack of them.
