demondoll2001 asked :
I'm wondering WHY things are so different in the US. After all, most of the the people who live in the US originally came *from* Europe. So why is it that they are so "religious" while Europeans are not?
The answer I got about this was suggested to me by an American woman a couple of years ago, and who wrote something like "Well, after all, most of the colons who came from Europe arrived in US because they'd been kicked out of Europe for being religious nutheads, that nobody still wanted to cope with over there".
A bit generalized and exaggerating, but... Not totally untrue.
