Australians… and beliefs

21 01 2009

What do Australians believe?

Did you know that in the 2001 Census, Australians identified in the following ways – when it came to belief or religion, or spirituality?

Christian       69%

No Religion  16%

No Reply        10%          

                                            NOTE:   TOTAL thus far… 95%

Then… of the remaining 5% it went like this:

Buddhist                                         1.94%

Muslim                                            1.53%

Hindu                                              0.52%

Jew                                                    0.46%

Aboriginal & TSI/Traditional    0.3%

           (… then there are the smaller home grown varieties of New Age, and so on).  

It is a big surprise to many people, that only 5% of Australians are in the ‘Other Religions’ category.

Point: Christian faith teaches that we should honor all people, of all creeds. It also teaches that the resurrection of Jesus is Public Truth. (Leslie Newbigin) 

 Q. Is it appropriate that we, all therefore, walk on tenterhooks in these matters?  

Thought for the Day: Could these figures be a major contributing factor as to why Australia is a generally fine place to live?
