I grew up in Québec which is 85% Catholic. I never heard about religious shit because nobody really rammed it down your throat. The only hint was the enormous amount of churches in Montreal— about one or two on every block (just kidding).
I’ve been living in the US for almost 18 years and God is everywhere. I see guys reading bibles in airport waiting areas.People come up to you on the street to convert you (they don’t even ask first if you are Christian— they just want to save you— from what!). If you watch the news there is at least one or two stories about preachers , abortion, collections, and other crap. Football players kneel down and pray after scoring a touchdown. Lottery winners thank God for their luck and Sarah Palin thinks having a handicapped child is a blessing. Is everybody nuts ?
I have no problem with religion but I do have a problem with hypocrites and zealots, and in America, that’s what religion is all about.
