19th April 2009

“When I rang up and asked Derry City Council's cemeteries department if it was possible to bury an atheist in a municipal cemetery they said it was possible because there were different sections for Catholics, Protestants and Muslims. My wife asked if it meant they were going to start an atheist section and the woman said, 'oh no, she can go in with the Protestants.'”

    I am going to go out on a limb and guess that Athiesm is not a major demographic in this part of Ireland.

    It is interesting that all three groups of people require their own sections, I guess it makes sense considering its past. It shows how far they still have to go culturally.
