A touchy subject this, but definitely a cultural one, I reckon. In Scotland, do people know which religion their neighbours/colleagues/friends follow? Does this knowledge affect the way they organise their day-to-day lives? We read of sectarian-motivated crime, but I would like to know whether the law-abiding majority are in fact sectarian in outlook. It's very difficult for someone not living in Scotland to get a feel for this. My non-religious English parents lived near Edinburgh for two years in the 1950s. My father heard people say "He's a left-footer", code for "He's a Catholic". He knew what the expression meant but he never found out whether the knowledge affected the speaker's behaviour towards the person in question.
