It's like the forms in Northern Ireland that would ask, not about actual religion/ethnicity  but whether the person would "be perceived as" Catholic or Protestant. When Rysmiel and papersky told me about those, I said I would need a "don't know" box, and they both confidently told me that, in that context, I would be perceived as Protestant.
rysmiel? papersky? Anyone else familiar with Northern Ireland who knows me?
Would I be perceived as Catholic or Protestant? If it will go into words, why?
Aside from being intrigued by the whole thing, I've gotta know whether I should be outraged by _The Da Vinci Code_.
