    Oddly enough, I feel at completely at home in both environments (secular/religious)... the United States and Israel.

    How do you think you'd feel in a much more markedly secular society such as Sweden or Scotland? I know it's pretty much a question of perspective, but many of us in Europe would identify the US as a much more 'religious' country than any with which we are familiar, and I don't make that comment with any value judgement placed on that being a good or bad thing.

    He doesn't make any sense either.

    I’m about 80/20 (secular/religious). One day I can be in Jerusalem which is perhaps the most religious city on earth, and the next day I’ll be at Fermilab (theoretical/experimental physics) which is perhaps one of the most God-less places on earth. I really have no problem with either environment. To better address your question though, I would truly mourn being denied either of these worlds.

    For some reason I can't fully explain, this cracked me up.

    Only Godless people protest God, and I don't care if you believe or not.

    I won't try to make you believe so don't you tell me what I can think or say in public about God.

    What is important is the message of Jesus and again I don't care if you don't believe in him, but I do think if we all believed in the words attributed to him hold up as a great guideline for life.

    One thing you find not only in the Bible but as a basic tenant in 21 religions around the world.

    "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."

    If we lived by this everything would change over night and prosperity would embrace the world, and we could then turn swords into plowshares.

    God bless you and America.

    Why would God bless an increasingly demoralized nation in terms of Christianity?

    Lol. And for some reason I can’t fully explain, I’m always tempted to affix a Mezuzah by the entrance way
