I must say I'm really intrigued by the nature of some of the debates on this forum... I'm not directing this against anyone, far from it! It's just an observation. Judging by some of the posts, it seems that the USA (and maybe Canada and Australia?) are still fairly "christianised", whereas in the UK or at least in France there is really a sense of living in a secularised, post-Christian world.
For example, a lot of points on this forum are debated with the help of verses from the Bible - which is something that is no longer done here, where religious texts are usually no longer thought to be inspired by most of the population, and where Christians (and other people in organised religions) have thus shifted to a different strategy of apologetics (and tend to use philosophical, ethical, scientific etc. arguments instead). So here are my questions:
Do what extent do you think that the USA (and Canada, Australia, NZ, etc...) are still Christian or christianised countries?
Atheists/agnostics/etc, do you think your countries are secular enough? Would you like them to be more secular?
Christians, do you think your countries are becoming too secular? Do you want your nations to stay Christian?
(I'm not being provocative or anything, I'm genuinely interested by everyone's opinion. I've been doing research about secularisation, the importance of religion in secularised/secularising societies, the links between religion and political conservatism, etc. And concerning the objectivity of the issue, I don't fit neatly in either of the two categories so I'm not biased towards any of the two religious/philosophical standpoints.)
