Majority of People in Scotland Have No Religion

More than half of the 5.4 million people living in Scotland have no religion, according to a survey published by Scottish Social Attitudes.

CHR Comment: The article describes the decline of the state church in Scotland, which is Presbyterian. Fewer people are attending and declaring affiliation with the state church. It also describes a small increase in Catholicism in Scotland due to immigration. There is a bar graph included, which illustrates changes. The associated survey question, however, may mean that people retain religious views but without having a denominational affiliation.
