This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
I'm Swedish, 32 years old. In (government) school we sang christian songs, ended the school year in church and had education on religion.In the city I live in now the (government) high schools employ school priests (evidence here: http://www.lund.se/Gymnasieskolor/Katedralskolan/Personal/Kuratorer-SYV-och-skolskoterska/ (search skolpräst=schoolpriest). The Swedish King must abide by the protestant faith by law. You must be buried by some religious institution etc.Sweden is not a secular nation. As for personal religion, the Swedish population has always adapted quickly to whatever religion the ruling class recommends. Currently they are recommending some kind of merchant environmentalism, so that's the religion most people have, but many (I would say about 30-40%) also add some form of theism to it.
heheh ... not much from the resident gnus here
