I'm a bit curious about the whole religion thing: what is a mormon really? (Yes I know I could look it up on google or something, but now I'm asking here)
In Denmark the main religion is christian, protestants. But no one here takes it very seriously. What I mean is we havea very... relaxed way of thinking about things and religion. It's a very common thing to get baptised (I think it's called) here, when you're about 2-4 months old and later you can confirm your faith and what not when you're in the 7th or 8th grade. We have catholics as well and of course muslims.
In Denmark we have a right to speak freely, practise any religion, and speak out as we like. (Though it's not 100 percent free, they just don't tell you that....)
Anyways, I'm an Atheist, I do not believe in anything, but I do respect people for thier choice of faith. And I can truely believe that a person might have the need for believing in something beyong natural things.
I think we came from evolution and all things happen for a natural reason and so on. I quit the Danish puplic church a year ago because I didn't wanted to pay the taxes.
No one here thinks you're weird because you aren't a memeber (my family isn't either) but as soon as you admit, or rather declare, that you're an atheist people might look at you funny. Just as much if you're actually declaring that you do go to church or that you do believe in some god or alike.
The most common thing is to ge something like: 'yes, I am a member, I am a protestant, but I do not practise it, I do not go to church and it's not important to me'.
How do you guys feel about our way at looking at things?
