multifaith army

Armed Forces' first Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh chaplains officially welcomed to their positions (BBC News)

Hmm, I wonder how many Pagans there are in the armed forces? I know of one. There must be more. I wonder how long it would take to get a Pagan chaplain? In fact, the MoD should be able to say how many they've got, as it is possible to get your religion printed on your dogtag.

There are 183,000 Christians, 305 Muslims, 230 Hindus, 220 Buddhists, 90 Sikhs and 65 Jews. It's excellent that the Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs now have chaplains (the Jewish personnel already had one).
