Japan has VERY high rates of rape. Yes 1% per every hundred thousand significantly lower than the USA which is 87% christian and is 27.3 per every hundred thousand. I'd think again demon.
Is that your moral viewpoint? Rape is OK?
skeptic, now you have some stats showing many times more rape committed by people in the US who have been influenced by Christianity than by people in Japan with zero Christian influence. The Japanese most definitely are not Christians.
So they should have higher rates of rape--along with all other crimes--than a society where many people are at least aware of Christianity. Don't change the subject to whether or not the US folks are really Christians or not. Many people in the US read the bible, pray, go to church, know the 10 commandments, etc, right?
If the atheist Japanese had more exposure to Christianity, how do you think their society would improve? My female Japanese students are shocked that they cannot take an evening walk in the religious US the way they would in their atheist cities back home.
Many have had cell phones and other electronics snatched right out of their hands in broad daylight--something like that happening to a foreign visitor in Japan is completely unthinkable to them.
Nobody in Japan would mistreat an elderly person the way they have frequently observed younger folks doing in the US. Remember, the Japanese treat the elderly well, but not because of anything in the bible.
And how did you get the idea that I "praised Japan for their morals"? I said that no society was a paradise, obviously there are problems in every culture. Japan, for example, has high rates of suicide among students who fail classes, partially due to the emphasis on not bringing shame to your family and community.
I only pointed out that many societies have developed basic rules, laws and ways of treating each other decently without Christianity.
But you are arguing that all non-Christian societies have to be hellholes like North Korea. Clearly, not the case, since many societies have survived and thrived without any knowledge of Jesus or the bible, and with little or no Christian influence.
You stated that all laws, rules and morals come from the bible and Christianity. Are you willing to admit that you are incorrect?
