funny questionnaire about religious affiliation

James Garth created the above questionnaire in response to those who complain that the question about religion in the Australian census were not detailed enough.

Not Liberal, Just Literate
"Mythicists and religious apologists are indeed identical in this respect. They both appeal to experts ..."
