    That comment surprises me a little, ignorant as I am about the northeast. There on Jonathan Edwards' home ice 'n all.

    When people refer to "northeast" and "new england," are they talking about two different things, at least as to matters of religious culture?

      The Burned Over district has been cold for 150 years.

      The Northeast is New England plus part of the Atlantic states (NY, NJ). Once you get into DE, MD, PA you are in other waters. Although I would give honorary Northeastern status to Philadelphia, as the spiritual capital of New Jersey.

      Fervent religion is dead in the Northeast except of course among the bottom 20% who even inhabit California (and Europe). Even the Catholicism of the Northeast has turned country club for everyone who scored at least 500 on their Verbal.

      • On this day in history (1252), the Ad extripanda was declared, igniting the Medieval Inquisition.

        And it was more than three centuries later when Luther said "I'll start my own church. With blackjack and hookers."

          Luther was an as-shole too.

              • Compared to the Protestant reformers, some of those Renaissance-era popes were serious playas.

                  Those Popes were kings and they acted like kings.

                      • Learned something new today. The Isle of Patmos, where John supposedly spent exile writing the book of Revelation, is home to an ubiquitous hallucinogen.

                        The book of Revelation could very well be him describing his Gigantic Trip.

                            Typos aside, this is a good thing and it's exactly why religious conservatives fear science and sex being taught in the classroom.

                              They don't believe in the bible or in religion, but they believe in horoscopes, and that getting even with someone is defensible.

                              It's different, I'll agree, although I'll withhold judgment on whether it's an improvement.
                              That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                              • Additionally, 43% of millennials stated they either don’t know, don’t care or don’t believe God exists ... and 44% of millennials believe Satan is a real and influential ...
                                Can I get a Venn diagram of those stats?
                                One could assume they are disparate and disconnected groups*, but it would be fun to see if some believe in one and not the other.


                                *Meaning blithely and blindly assume 43% no God (and by extension no Satan); and, 44% is Satan (and by extension is God).
