  •  I haven't been to Iceland. But.... (6+ / 0-)

    ...in 1991, I visited Norway and Denmark.

    When I was in Denmark, my landlady asked me to give a presentation at her school; the topic was life in America.

    When I described the awful state of US health care, I complimented Denmark's system of public health care. One of the students had a response to my compliment:

    We make sure everyone has health care, because we are a Christian nation.
    I think she made a valid point. If Jesus were to compare the social democracies of Scandinavia against the profanity of Teahadist Christian Nationalism, then he'd much claim the Scandinavia countries as "His Nations".

    Pull yourself up by your Mittstraps: borrow a few million dollars from your parents!
