 Big UK decline in Bible ownership


Far fewer households in the UK now own Bibles than was the case fifty years ago, according to a new poll carried out by ICM Research, a survey organisation often used by Government and leading charities and businesses.

In 1954 90 per cent of all adults owned a Bible, a figure now reduced to 65 per cent. Including households with children the decline is apparently from 98 per cent to 62 per cent.

However, belief in the paranormal is on the increase, with 42 per cent of people claiming to believe in ghosts, a 10 per cent rise over half a century.
