Scottish humanist weddings to outnumber religious ones

According to a recent report:

Quote:
The Humanist Society of Scotland has reported an increase in the number of ceremonies its celebrants are conducting, up to about 3,000 last year. It predicts they will become more popular than Church of Scotland weddings in as little as two years.

The same would be true elsewhere in the UK, the British Humanist Association (BHA) says, if only the ceremonies were legally recognised. That happened  in Scotland in 2005, when there were fewer than 100 ceremonies, but the country is one of few in the world where non-religious weddings are allowed.


I don't understand the point about few countries not allowing non-religious weddings - in England and Wales there have been purely secular civil marriages since 1837.

OK, we will see in two years time.
I predict more will just go for a civil ceremony and not the humanist ceremony. My sister and brother in law were married in our home by a judge.

A win-win situation, as it's known.

How petty to view how people marry as some type of victory against religion.
How amusing that your days are so consumed with religion.

I've not been to a Humanist wedding - but I have been to a Humanist funeral. It was very thoughtful actually - there was acknowledgement that some had religious beliefs, and time for private prayer.
