So I live in Orlando, Fl, but I just spent a week in Gatlinburg Tn with my sisters. I noticed something while I was there. Every single shop, store, gas station, etc.. in Tn had a religious display. It's usually the biggest, and closest to the door, display holding crosses, collectibles, bumper stickers, t-shirts, or anything else they can use to get the words Jesus loves you out there. Even while in Tn we went to a place called the Comedy Barn, for some fun, and half the songs they sang were about Jesus. It was a little strange for me to be so saturated with religious propaganda. I'm not saying that you can't find that kind of stuff here in Orlando, you just have to look around for it. Up there I felt like people had an, "In your face" kind of attitude regarding religion.
So my question is, Is it like that in your area, where you can't go anywhere with out God being thrown in your face? And how do you feel about it?
I live in southern Louisiana, and I don't really see that here. I see some signs every now and then about God or Jesus but not that much and only around Christmas time. We have all different types of "churches" for different types of religion. I have seen some for Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and not to mention the different types of Christian churches. We also have different stores that cater to different beliefs. I, personally, am not any of these religions so I don't really care. What someone believes or doesn't believe is none of my business and if they want to display it on their property it's their right.
