Article is West-European biased[edit]

Most of the article is stricly from West European point of view. It completely ignores situation of religion in politics and society in countries like Poland.--Molobo 17:51, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

This article is about the EU as a whole, not about individual countries. —Angr 18:17, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
EU is made out of individual countries and this article presents a view that shows it as a single unified region in regards to religion and its role in society and politics.--Molobo 18:28, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
This article is based on a short section from the European Union page which has been expanded with figures to hand. Feel free to expand upon it by giving a counter weight to examples from Western European by giving examples from Eastern Europe - though do note this is meant to have a union-wide perspective rather than just list each countries situation. I look forward to any contributions you bring, but please remember to cite considering the subject at hand. - J Logan t: 15:29, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Synagogue[edit]

Interesting article at EU Observer here on Barroso inaugurating a "European synagogue", not sure how we would fit it in here though. Anyone seen anything similar we can put it with?- J Logan t: 11:00, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

"Paganism"[edit]

May I remind Esimal that this is a serious educational tool, not a blog or reenactor community. Please provide a single source in regards to "Paganism" being regarded as a religion within the European Union. Otherwise you'd perhaps be best stuck to blogging. - Gennarous (talk) 20:19, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

pie chart mods[edit]

I modified the pie chart and checked back to the source for names. I used different shades of blue to purple for the various forms of Christianity (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Other Christian) and different shades of red to differentiate atheists from agnostics/non-believers (the survey differentiated). I did lump together other religion and not specified since the total after lumping was small, 3%. --Erp (talk) 03:20, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
