Smemorina: I could not read your first Italian post but my husband could. He is Sicilian and we visited Sicily last May. I loved Sicily! It was bella bella. It was difficult for me because I cannot speak the language so my husband had to interpret everything. We had an absolutely wonderful time, loved the people, and hope to return. Welcome to the board and so good having someone from Italy with us. In Sicily we saw many Christian traditions upheld everywhere we went. Papa Pio's picture was in every business and home, along with a crucifix..Can you imagine a crucifix in an office building in America?
As we know, America has become the melting pot for all religious faiths. Muslim faith has been growing by leaps and bounds. In France, it is approx 90 percent Muslim now.
England is also growing fast in this faith. As I understand it, Muslim faith is peaceful being believers in Allah (God) but there are always some who become radical and spoil the view of the religion. However, the Muslim faith nor any other did not found the country of America and it should be remembered that our forefathers created the constitution and the bill of rights which act to govern the great country of America. Because we do have freedom of religion in America I believe there are some trying to spoil it for the majority by imposing their secluded views. For instance, one athiest can cause prayer to be taken out of the schools which we know happened many years ago. I say when you remove God from our schools, God removes Himself and we are on our own which is just sad to me because I see this is where it's at today. Nothing surprises me anymore. If we do not teach our children at home Christian principles/Godly values, it will not happen in the schools and this is just the way it has become and seems to be getting further and further away from God.
