When John Lennon told us to imagine a world with no religion, those of us in the United States tried really hard, but it seemed pretty impossible. After all, religion is everywhere here. It’s even on our money.
Fortunately, the people in the UK are no longer imagining this mystical world. They’re living in it, according to a HuffPost/Survation poll of 2,004 Brits. It turns out that Britons are a lot less religious than Americans, and they don’t think you have to be Christian to be moral.
Did you ever hear about Logan, a tall teen from Holly Springs, North Carolina? The 17-year old is 6’7”, and as you can imagine, his height became quite the conversation starter.
