"16 people who would not be aligned with a religion..." I'm really surprised by this and not quite sure I believe it.
 
Compare that to the 8 who speak English. That was even more surprising to me.
Another way of looking at it is that there are half as many "unaligned with a religion" than there are Christians. Sounds a bit more plausible.
