Some interesting numbers.
I was recently in Eastern Europe. The tour said that the country, the Check Republic, was decidedly non Christian. I was prepared for an uncivilized population but found them to be quite polite, the streets largely free of rubbish, little graffiti, drivers courteous as in very few horn sounds, generally a civilized place.. This piqued my interest so I checked their crime stats.
For the Check Republic:
Opiate use 0.4%
Violent crime 181/million
The country I came from and returned to:
For the USA:
Opiate use 0.57%
Violent crime 12,996/million
I am just pointing out the differences in a place where the population is percentage wise very much not Christian to a place where percentage wise the population claims to be Christian.
The numbers may not be entirely accurate. Jut what I could get off the net.
Numbers came from:
I love this country. But maybe it is time to look at our culture and see if we can put a bit of a correction in our direction. Perhaps bring civility back as a desired personality trait rather than perceived as a weakness.
