Secular Hungary

Sound catholic maths

The Hungarian Catholic Church is encouraging their followers to enrol as census officers for this autumn’s general census. The bishops justified their call with the need „to ensure that the census is carried out adequately from all aspects”, considering (as they said) that the population will be asked also about their religious affiliation. The weekly HVG (No 30 of 30 July, page 13) commented that ’the Bishops’ Conference seems to distrust the National Statistics Office’.

Which reminds me of a friend who had some trouble in convincing the census officer to tick the „no religious affiliation” box last time, 10 years ago.
