The US is the most religious nation in the developed world... Americans are also the most religiously ignorant people in the Western world
Which wouldn’t have surprised Mgr Ronald Knox who described it as the happy hunting-ground of sectarianism

What’s chilling about part of English and I imagine continental society (right, John?) is that the intelligentsia do understand the faith intellectually (the university man who knows what the name of his college means) and say non serviam. A creepy self-awareness as somebody once described it to me.
