On the morning of 13th November 2001 Kabul was liberated from five years of Taleban rule, said to have been possibly the harshest regime in the world. The Northern Alliance announced that women in Afghanistan can now go back to work, and girls can go to school - activities that were previously banned and in Kabul women tore off veils and berqa's that they were forced to wear by the ruling militia.

Some libraries and schools have banned J.K. Rowling's fantastical books about the orphan Harry Potter, written using classical methods of children's story telling, as they could be misconstrued. For example, Dixie State College Library, Utah banned it from the bookshelves for the books depictions of "magic, sorcery, wizardry, witchcraft, Satanism, occult, and sheer evil".

jedi 'Jedi'
Painted ceramic, cotton
22 x 20 x 68cm

Shortly before the census last April, an e-mail was circulated in the UK stating that if 10,000 people put Jedi on their census form, it would become a "fully recognised and legal religion". Sufficient numbers of people wrote the entry in for it to be allocated its own code and will therefore be included in historical archive material for future generations to view

'Religions are difficult for a K-PAXian to understand. Either all of them are right or none of them is.'
'All wars are holy wars'

Taken from the book K-Pax by Gene Brewer (the subject of a forthcoming film starring Kevin Spacey), a mysterious character 'Prot' is admitted to a mental institution after he claims he is from the planet K-Pax. The psychiatrist comes to believe that he is who he claims he is, as do other patients, who listen to his prophesies and ideas and whilst ultimately disappointed (K-Pax II) everyone involved still believe that the principles governing K-Pax could lead to a tranquil existence.

Is football the new religion? In 1998 the UK's biggest sculpture - Anthony Gormleys 'Angel of the North', was installed to national and international acclaim and criticism. On May 12th 1998 a group of Newcastle United supporters paid tribute to their hero by draping a 29 x 17ft replica of Alan Shearer's shirt over the sculpture.
