Los­ing our re­li­gion

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

The num­ber of Scots who say they are not re­li­gious has risen to al­most three­quar­ters, a poll found.

Just un­der a quar­ter (23.6 per cent) said they were re­li­gious, while 72.4 per cent said they were not, fig­ures re­leased by Hu­man­ist So­ci­ety Scot­land showed.

This was up from a sim­i­lar poll in 2011 when just over half (56 per cent) said they were not re­li­gious.

“If any­one com­mits a crime, be it fraud or any­thing else, then you would ex­pect po­lice would make in­quiries into it.

“If this hap­pened in any other pro­fes­sion, the ap­pro­pri­ate pro­fes­sional body would make in­quiries and, if there was a crim­i­nal el­e­ment to it, you would ex­pect po­lice to become in­volved.

“I don’t not see how the sit­u­a­tion should be any dif­fer­ent for so­lic­i­tors.”
