Religious Troublemakers

At the end of an article about pagans in jails in England and Wales now being allowed objects to conduct their own cermonies I came across figures showing the religious faiths of perpetrators. I’ve re-ordered them by number of convicted each faith claims.

Make of them what you will.

No religion 22,584
