  • because as I've learned from travelling the world over, that Americans are very tunnel visioned and for whatever reason seem to think everyone does things the same as them and are quick to criticize those that don't, as tho there's is the only way. I can see why other cultures see ours as very arrogant and self-important.

  • They do not have respect for the culture of other countries or other Christians.

  • One thing that comes to mind is the way many tie religion to politics... The "Religious Right", etc, etc...

  • one thing i noticed when i lived in Japan is that Asian Christians are a lot more "into" their faith. most Americans tend to be "saved" and then forget about it, take it for granted.

    Also, without America Christianity would probably not be what we see it as now...the Great Awakenings and freedom to create whatever denomination one wants really changed Christianity.

  • You really do not want me to go here :-)
    Okmanders is on the right track....

    However things are changing... you may not see it but the Christians that are aware do see it. For that I am grateful!

  • I guess we claim to be a "Christian" nation rather than a melting pot
