(London Daily Mail) Christians are less likely than atheists to be promoted to top jobs, official figures show.

Nearly a quarter of people with no religious belief live in homes headed by someone with a senior executive position or a job in one of the professions.

The figures also show high levels of senior and professional employment among the Jewish and Hindu communities.
