    A highly religious Roman Catholic and Protestant dominance with a 12% Islamic population to boot. No surprise really. Maintain values? maintain tradition (stagnate) more like.

    I don't think I'm shocked or surprised, yet it is easy to become complacent within a 'tolerant' society. It's a case of count your blessings (without wishing to sound like Oprah Winfrey, no offense, other chat show hosts are available).
