I live in Norway, and in all my life I have only had one friend that's religious. Of course he belives in evolution and supports gay marriage and such, so by american standards he's not much of a christian. As for my other friends, religion just isn't much of a topic other than the occasional rant about crazy fundamentalists they have read about in the news.

In general I just assume that everyone I meet is non-religious, and if someone reveals themselves as christians they're usually very quick to ensure me of how liberal they are.

Strangely enough, of all the various educational institutions I've been through, the group with the highest rate of christians was my class at university, studying natural sciences.
