  •  We have a very intolerant society (7+ / 0-)

    In my opinion it's pretty doubtful that we are all that different from European people, where non-belief in god is much higher.  The difference is our society is much less tolerant of such views.  Intolerance is a huge barrier to people taking the time to consider something and come to their own conclusions about belief.  

    Don't like XOM and OPEC? What have YOU done to reduce your oil consumption? Hot air does NOT constitute a renewable resource!

      just not so much based on religion, or lack thereof.  Racism is alive and well on that continent.

      •  Maybe that's the difference... (1+ / 0-)

        Kind of weird to think of it that way.

        it's a matter of degree, and who is the current scapegoat. Right now we have leaders who wear their Christianity as a desirable brand name, in order to appear honest (rather than actually BEING honest).

        You can't get away with the crunch, 'cuz the crunch always gives you away
