Religion and Irreligion in Denmark and the USA

The USA is arguably the most religious democracy in the western world, while Denmark is arguably the least. Will the situation remain this way? Will Denmark stay relatively irreligious, or will religion start to grow stronger in the years ahead? This lecture argues that Danes will remain secular in the years ahead, and perhaps even come to see religion as part of the problem in the world – the USA included – rather than part of the solution.

It is quite ironic that lack of separation between church and state is one of the reasons that Danes are so irreligious today. Phil Zuckerman explains it very well.

Very good explanation as well as a great video.

I'd say India is the most religious democracy in the world.
