Secularism

Just calling it like it

 

I come here and other pages and can't believe how secular people in the US are treated. or .. How did itr happen that in the US every one seems to rub ones nose into their religion (or lack there off)

Here in Europe Religion(some places are more religious than others) is a private matter. No one asks you no one berates you unless you happen to meet a stand on the street or door to doo.r jehovas.

Obviously fundie families wouldnt be so popular in US culture if no one gave a toss about their belief.

 

I like the rough stats for Hamburg:

Quote
In late 2009, 30% of the population belonged to the North Elbian Evangelical Lutheran Church, the largest religious body, and 10% to the Roman Catholic Church.[30]

 

According to one 2011 estimate based on ethnic origin, there are 200,000[31] Muslims of whom 50,000 are Alevis,[31] although Alevis do not always identify themselves as Muslims.

 

 

Quote
There is a non-religious majority in Hamburg, Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt only 19.7 percent belong to the two big denominations of the country.[33]

Also The US had a 4 & rise in atheism from 2005 to 2012.
