Europe doesn’t care much for religion
I need to find myself a nice European wife. Sure, you might not have big, spacious apartments like mine (for a cool 350 bones a month), but at least your population seems to have their heads screwed on right. According to this poll, almost half of the European population feels religion is given way too much attention. It ranked the lowest in terms of their personal values, at roughly 7% (with peace and respecting human rights topping the charts). How awesome is that?
Even in Canada, we give an unusual amount of time and respect to religious leaders for reasons that escape me right now. Perhaps we feel these experts in non-sense somehow have something valuable to say. We need them, supposedly, to answer our deep philosophical questions about life; like how many angels can fit on the head of a pin, or can sky god make a rock so big even he can’t lift it. These are serious concerns only for the insane.
I rather like the idea of living somewhere that focuses its energy on trying to improve our lot in life, rather than prepare us for the ‘bliss’ of the afterlife. Imagine a place where your lack or religion is seen as a good sign, rather than an uncomfortable issue which has to be ignored. So if any of you hot single European girls are looking for a sardonic Canadian to marry, I’m your man!
