Congratulations to All Estonian ISF Members: You won!

Two new Danish articles based on a new PEW report (Dec. 5):

Danmark er det næstmindst religiøse land i Europa (Kristeligt Dagblad, Dec. 22, 2018)
Denmark is the second least religious country in Europe

Danskernes paradoksale tro: Vi er kristne, men ikke religiøse (Kristeligt Dagblad, Dec. 21, 2018)
The paradoxical faith of the Danes: We are Christians, but we’re not religious

The PEW report:
Quote:
Using the combined measure shows that, overall, Central and Eastern Europeans are more likely than Western Europeans to be highly religious. For example, in Armenia and Greece, roughly half of adults are highly religious. Meanwhile, only about one-in-ten people in Denmark, Sweden and the United Kingdom qualify as highly religious by these criteria.
How do European countries differ in religious commitment? Use our interactive map to find out. (PEW Research Center, Dec. 5, 2018)

By the way, Estonians, why do the Latvians and the Lithuanians lag so far behind you in this respect?

yes, Estonians, tell me, a Latvian, too
a small skew in Latvia is the russian orthodoxs and the catholic South-East (because of Poland -- the same as below regarding the Lithuanians). but I do not know any person regular church-goer. even those few -- they just got registered to be able to marry in church (well, shes wanted it)
Lithuania-- another, a bit different story. being Catholic because of political reasons for centuries.
