""offensive"? i can't be happy for your country's educational system. I don't understand why sensitizing children in perception of reality is a good idea. They should train their minds to think objectively about facts. On the…"
"I can understand how it must feel to be pushed aside by your own family, especially because of some idiotic notion that is routed to their minds. There is a chance i am wrong but can it be that islamism works both as a religion and as sort of a…"
"i can't believe that this news has spead across the ocean :)) haha. It is clearly money laundering and filthy politics. It shows that some high-heads in church hold a lot of influence over the government's decisions. Even a larger hand…"
"Greetings from the 90% religious Romania. :)) I like the scale in the left-corner of the map, really. But, almost ironically, many religious people from my country also have very strong secular voices. I am an open atheist in my community and so far…"

Yeah, we've got the Constitution on our side, but the Christians have been able to violate it for so long, because no one challenged them on it. The fundamentalists are all horribly educated about what the Constitution actually says, and it's not like their preachers are going to set them straight.
Well, at least you don't have the Catholic church very active over there, right? Nothing sucks money out of an economy like the Vatican.
