    For copyright reasons I can't post the entire results of a Harris Internet Poll, but it does give a lot of insight into faith and what cultural groups people define themselves as.

    Check the link above and discuss.

    For the record, I define myself as culturally Christian, even if secular rather than religious. I celebrate the secular versions of Easter and Christmas, rather than Eid ul-Fitr or Chanukkah.

    and for the UK:

    67% described themselves as Christian, fewer than in the 2001 census, and more (22%) as having no faith.
    Fewer than 50% of 18-34-year-olds called themselves Christians and more 18-24-year-olds (43%) described themselves as having no faith than as Christian (41%).
