Make a change such as wearing skirts and dresses more often, or growing

I would like to thank you for providing me with one of my New Year's resolutions!

Default where is this Christian society?...

Except for the Vatican, where is anything remotely, vaguely similar to a Christian society.

It can't be Ireland with its enormous resurgent pseudo-celtic heritage, neo-pagan, going back to our roots thing. I am Irish, but I don't experience any greater reverence for Christianity there now that Ireland is entirely dependent on EU social welfare handouts. Crime is soaring, for instance.

There is a nasty trade-off there and bureaucrats in Brussels remind the Irish about it every time they go against the EU grain like in matters concerning divorce, living together having kids out of wedlock, etc.

This scenario is played out in every EU country regardless of how many catholics live there. Just look at the downward spiral of Italy, Spain Portugal to name a few. Socialist govt there see it as their duty to eradicate the influence of the church. Here in scandinavia its fait accompli.

Women have been objectified in the most vilest of ways, they are expected to flaunt their sexiness and not hide it demurely. Nude beaches here in scandinavia are so common place, it only encourages this breakdown in modesty.

The only women who are zealously protected are muslims to the point of oppression, they want no part of a Christian lifestyle only the benefits a peaceful Christian society provides.

Default The Amish

In the US, the Amish, or Pennsylvania Dutch, have an insular society in which women all dress modestly (in dresses) and women do not teach adult men. They also forsake electricity, for reasons which are not clear to me.
