Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderNew Jerseyan by birth, but raised in Colorado since I was two. However, my mother is a first generation immigrant from Serbia (she moved here for college when it was still a part of Yugoslavia) and I've travelled all over Europe (since I have a grandparent in Serbia (the other Serbian grandparent is dead :c) and an uncle in France. Plus, I spent about 6 months in Sweden and I've gone to Egypt where I met a Coptic friend of my parents from college. While I'm American by birth, I have been exposed to diverse cultures.

Yeah. Religion in itself isnt at fault. Hell. By all historical accounts, Jesus' reaction to gay people being in love would at worst be giving them a hug and a wish for a happy life for them.Awesomest thing I've read all day.
On the other hand, the most zealous of Christians tend to ignore any part of their religious doctrine that doesnt jive with their zeal.QFT.

It was an honor

the crowning achievement of mankindEven more than the Tower of Babel? (If I believed in the Bible, I'd definitely consider the Tower of Babel to be the crowning achievement of mankind as it was basically everyone working together and building a tower that was tall enough it almost literally went to heaven. Totes awesome.)
NCC - 1701New York City is the Tower of Babel if you built out instead of up.

Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderI'm sure quite a few other cities are like that as well, such as Tokyo.
Kansas City is that way as well. Hell, its a sinful bastion of liberalism and unions in the middle of a rural conservative landscape. it even has a Gay Bar themed restauraunt franchise. (the food is excellent) I cant wait to live there.

Euo will do!British via a lot of places. English by birth and where I live, until you hear me speak: weird South African-Northern English Accent (quite posh, but still too North to be South) cross. Isn't that most sinful cities, though? There's nothing scarier than cosmopolitan places, because you never know what strange, alien views people find in cities...

Absolutely no relation to NLKWell, to encause the derail, I was asking because all that incredibly hateful stuff I see on the Internet and you guys talk about as a matter of daily occurrence, I have never seen, down here. (Here being Chile).
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of OrderI imagine the Tower of Babel to be a tower that reaches up into what is considered to be outer space that has a base larger than Central Park in New York City. What we've built in the last century ain't got shit on that.
evil incarnateThat's a matter of some contention. Nonetheless, I was thinking more about how we've put several robots on Mars and walked on the fucking moon.
Liberty in the Mother not Daughter of Order...Ok, you've got me there...
Fox PrincessLived in Alabama most of my life. Decent enough place to live if you avoid certain topics (especially politics, sex, and religion). Yes, that is a rebel flag flying under the American one near the capitol building (and just a few blocks away from the memorial to Dr. King). Just try to ignore it. It's not coming down any time soon. I say that because today is Confederate Memorial Day. Yeah, that exists. To say anymore would be off topic, though.

True of pretty much everywhere.

Happy winter holidays!Not me. I'm an outside look on the US, and it's about as glorious as outside looks on France.
They Called Me Mad!! I decided to show them all; but when I looked on my works, oh mighty, I despaired: for it made me realize they were right.
Globalist BunnyBritish here, but the more rural and posh parts of England, unlike most of our Brit troopers, whom are Scottish or northern.

Laboriously re-writing my storyGiven the thread, wouldn't asking people's religion (both of choice and of childhood) be more relevant?
Family reunions are like colonoscopies; no matter how much you’d rather not, you still need to have one every few years.
evil incarnateI think most of our religions (or lack thereof) are pretty well known.
