BBC Faith Survey

According to a poll taken for BBC News 24's Faith Day, more than two-thirds of the 1,019 respondents identified themselves as Christian, but only 17% regularly went to church. Fair enough, we're British and don't go in for bothering the Almighty unnecessarily... But the Beeb seems a bit scandalised that more than a third of them said they had no understanding of Islam. What is the Beeb on about? I bet they don't have much idea about Christianity either. Especially if they're CofE!

I should have thought that the really positive story to take away from the poll is that the "christians" interviewed had a more positive than negative view of Islam. But it would appear that the sikhs are none too keen!

Typical beeb: they should note that the percent of Christians with a negative view of Islam is only (or less than) 5% more than the MUSLIMS with a negative view of Islam!!!!

I'm also trying to figure out how they get 50% of the Sikhs witha negative attitude...check the number of Sikhs in the poll...then tell me HOW THE FUCK they get 50%.
