Here’s an entertaining quote about American religiosity from a book by Hans-Dieter Gelfert entitled Typisch amerikanisch: Wie die Amerikaner wurden, was sie sind (17):
Europeans must see American religiosity as naïve, if not primitive. Here, the educated are helped primarily by enlightened theologians who reinterpret Christian doctrine for everyday use, but at the same time for philosophically abstract ethics. At the same time there are pastors who believe that they can get by without mentioning God’s name. It’s quite different in America, where the Bible is still the Word of God.
Those stupid Americans.
