Is Aberdeen a Catholic club?

Is Aberdeen a Catholic club?

Historically, a variety of faiths of Christianity have been represented in the city, most notably the Church of Scotland through the Presbytery of Aberdeen and the Catholic religion. The University of Aberdeen has a modest Baha'i Faith society. As well as these two religions, there are also communities of Islamic worship near to the city centre.

Currently, both the Presbytery of Aberdeen and the Catholic Church in Scotland are part of the Scottish Episcopal Church which is in turn part of the Anglican Communion. However, since 2009 neither body has had a priest resident in the city so they are jointly administered by the Bishop of Aberdeen who is appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The original Aberdeen FC was founded in 1881 by a group of local Catholics who were unhappy with the selection process for new players used by Preston North End. The team became known as "The Dons" after the local university. In 1890, the club joined the Scottish Football League where they remained until 1903 when they withdrew in protest against the election of an atheist as president of the English league team West Bromwich Albion. After this incident, many Catholic clubs followed suit and refused to play West Bromwich Albion or any other club elected as above because it was forbidden to sell alcohol in those days inside stadiums. Only in 1910 did the government pass an act allowing football clubs to serve liquor on their premises.

What is the religion of Aberdeen?

Christianity is the most widely practiced religion in the city. The Church of Scotland (through the Presbytery of Aberdeen) and the Roman Catholic Church are Aberdeen's two major denominations, each boasting a substantial number of churches around the city, with the Scottish Episcopal Church having the third-highest number. There are also several smaller churches and congregations.

Aberdeen has been described as "a city where Christianity is thriving and religions other than Christianity are growing". Approximately 70% of the population are Christian, with the largest non-Christian groups being Muslims at 8%, Hindus at 2% and Jews at 1%.

In 2016, it was reported that there were protests outside mosques across the country after attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand and Orlando, Florida. These attacks were said to be perpetrated by white supremacists who believe Islam to be wrong for women and gays. However, it is not only Muslims who are protested against, but also Christians who people claim are protesting against ideas rather than against their religious beliefs themselves. In response to these protests, some Islamic leaders have called on worshipers not to attend any church during these times of pain and distress.

According to a 2012 report from the United Kingdom Census, 58% of Aberdeen residents describe themselves as Christian, while another 11% say they have no religion. The remaining 31% of the population is made up of individuals who identify themselves as Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish or Other.
