Reviewer 2 Report

As an overall comment, this article is somewhat thin analytically... but the material is interesting, and the article is well-written. I want to know more about the non-religious demographics of the area... but there's not really very much for me to fault here. A solid piece of interesting work, destabilizing the notion that the religion/non-religion divide is the most important, but that situational configurations of power affect ways of being differently 'religious' or 'non-religious' to the mainstream. Echoes findings in my own work.

The introduction is  well-written and argued. I would take issue with Hjarvard's broad brush-stroke generalizing... but the point is that the authors are trying to nuance and evidence this. So, that's fine... 

Yes, it's more difficult to come by... but some sort of attempt at mapping the 'non-religious' populace of the region would be appreciated... are there any statistics? If not... maybe some conjecture and reflection on why stats are so hard to come by?

I also wonder why the authors would assume that the onlookers are not active churchgoers? The reader needs more information about the context and the basis for this assumption... 

There are some very minor issues with font choices and spellings. Noted in the attached. 

Other than that, I have very little to add. I feel like I got to know the locality well, and the argument juxtaposing these two communities of outsiders is well-made and worthwhile.
