Paganism "fastest growing" religion in Australia


The Sydney Morning Herald carries a story this morning entitled "The Pagans of Suburbia" investigating the rise of Paganism. The 2001 Census revealed that Paganism is the fastest growing religion in Australia.

Monsignor Tony Doherty, is quoted in the article as spokesman for Sydney's Catholic Archdiocese, saying pagans "articulate a very serious cry" from society -- "There are a lot of searching Australians who don't find much echo in their spirit with the language and the ritual of the institutional churches, and that's an issue."
