@ eddy666 - I've been there too and I`m sticking with what I said. You liked it, good for you. Mexico City and Puerto Villarta are nice, but you don`t have to go too far to find squaller and people living without plumbing, water or electricity. Same thing in SK, in my view.

Justahuman, just furthering what I said before because you really twisted my words and I want to clarify. If someone was simply religious, but accepted reality as we know it, even if it counters their religious texts, I'd be fine with it. If they didn`t use their religious texts to harm others, I`d be fine with it. If they didn`t discriminate against others with differing beliefs, I`d be fine with it. But that`s usually not the case. You get parents teaching their kids that evolution is wrong, and that gay people are bad, and that atheists or people of differing religions are evil and shouldn`t be trusted. This is what I`m not okay with, so that`s why I don`t like finding out that religions are growing in other countries. Doesn`t mean I think it should be banned, but it`s just disappointing, because people have a hard time separating their religion from everything else and it harms others overall.

"There are quite a few Koreans who are unhappy with their education system and envy the educational approach of the States."
There are quite a few Americans who are unhappy with their poor education system and envy the approach in other countries, too. And? There are many things I don't like about the Korean education system, but most of it`s societal that I don`t like, because the extreme amount of pressure on Korean kids often leads to suicide which is awful. But to imply that South Koreans are unintelligent with a poor education system, as chickiesue did, is dishonest.
