Finally it's been sorted. A new category called 'other - pagan' has been organised by the Census Office. It means that those who use the PaganDASH option will be counted as Pagans and also as members of their individual paths. Those who prefer just to put their individual paths will also be counted as Pagans.

Thanks for that; the news certainly does filter down slowly to me.

No problem. Smiley

I worry that it's not getting to people in time for the Census on Sunday - a different UK-based pagan organisation is still giving out contradictory advice, asking all of us (no matter what path) to write 'Pagan'. Unfortunately, to a lot of people in the UK, that doesn't mean anything. Many still think it means atheist.

Herding cats.

I don't know what would be the most forgiveable interpretation of 'Pagan' in the UK: athiest or nutjob.

Knowing this place as I do:- I'd say nutjob. It's something most people can understand. It's suprising how many people don't know what Atheist even means.

I really, really hope you don't know that from direct experience. I thought it was a watchword of the modern era.

Looking back on the UK pagan moot/festival/gathering website pictures and advertising, 'Nutjob' seems to be the image we like to convey. Stupid me thinking that a Pagan gathering might have some semblance of religion or spirituality involved. No, I'll follow the encouragements to dress like a 'Tim Burton character' and drop lots of money into donation buckets. Interfaith in action.
Off the soapbox now.

Unfortunately, I do hate to say it, but I really do know a lot of people like that.  Huh Roll Eyes
