Is the United States more religious than Europe? My understanding is that Europe is broadly-but-casually religious whereas the US is specifically-but-actively religious, e.g. France vs the Bible Belt. Curious because I heard an argument attributing the prevalence of religion as inversely proportional to the size of a societies social safety net.
In France, since 1905, we have a strong secularism (french secularism). Step by step people lost faith. But since twenty years, there is a revival, especially worn by the Muslim community. The new fashionable term is spirituality, not really faith but believe in some spirit, theism or pantheism. French people reject mainly the Church as an institution not religion
