I don't know if too many of the people he talked to came off all that well (though they were not speaking their first languages) but guys like the pastor always strike me as weirdly innocent and childlike. Surely he knows that there are non-religious people in Georgia? Surely he knows that various American Christian denominations are okay with gay marriage? What has he been doing with his life?

I spent a summer in Stockholm, this made me miss it.
I found the "God made love to unite people, not just for procreation" idea pretty interesting.
I've never been, but my dad's side of the family comes from Norway. It's a pretty cool group of Runes, who are more proud of that heritage than the Christianity that was forced upon them. Is going into an IKEA in Scandinavia more "normal," like the way Americans like me might go just to a Home Depot? Because that'd be awesome. Doubly cool if the Home Depot hands out American Flags and grills hot dogs all day in Scandinavia.

I was expecting him to be a militant jerk, but he's just a lost little puppy dog who's never seen the world before.
You just know everytime he goes "Wow...wow," he's processing this amazing revelation that these people who aren't Christians are perfectly nice human beings. That and he's probably thinking, "I bet these people use CONDOMS. And they've probably seen more than one pair of boobs. Do all boobs look the same? Am I going to Hell because I wondered that?"

I wonder how fundies like this guy reconcile all this lack of religion with the fact that these countries are doing so much better than us right now.
Probably something to do with some END TIMES cryptic line in Revelation I'm guessing.

Now ask these Nordic people what their opinion on black people is.

Guy isn't nearly as bad as I've encountered. Just the fact that he was willing to go there and talk with people shows that.
Sanest Man Alive
Before I watched, I was briefly confused as to which Georgia this guy was from. In my experience, even the nicer Solid South preachers would sooner hang themselves with their own robes than travel this far from the sweltering bosom of God's Other Chosen Nation.
