How is the PF's 'pagan dash' campaign going?  I've been reading a lot of argument on GB boards about whether the accuracy of people writing Pagan- followed by their particular path is better or if they should go with just plain Pagan for it's total numbers. 

I've read comments from someone involved in data correlation that there are a lot of potential answers (holistic among them) that will be counted as pagan this year instead of 'other'.  I'm not sure about that, though.  It sounds like it might just be wishful thinking on the PF's part.

I've also read comments that the annoyance factor of so many people writing Jedi is one of the reasons this will be the last time the census will be done in its current format.  That last one might just be the specific poster's pet annoyance, though, since it is only the format and delivery system being changed, rather than no more census at all.


Couldn't tell you, to be honest. I've not registed with the PF and I'm not active on any GB-based pagan communities. I was pondering over that point myself, whether to favour quantity or quality. Quantity being 'Pagan the umbrella term' or quality being 'Heathen because it is specific' - just to remind myself when I reread this thread in six years time.

I doubt they will be more printed options with tick boxes, particularly in a minority classification like pagan denominations. It sounds like wishful thinking to me, though I wouldn't mind being proved wrong.

Writing Jedi - no, we can't resist a little geeky subversion. I'm wonder if this decade has had a particular fad religion that we'll be encouraged (in chain SMS) to write.

Life being short on laughs, I decided to wear a pentacle.
