Yep that's me, Rufious, pleased to meet you and don't be scared of the make-up I'm actually quite friendly and I certainly don't bite:XD: In fact I'm usually quite the chatterbox and you are free to ignore the excessive chatter if you want. I'm a Medicine Student very much in love with her life, and with a passion for martial arts, playing music and painting. I roleplay during what little free time I have left and I don't sleep enough even though I badly need it. There are too much fun things to do in life to waste your time sleeping I think.

I notice you’re from the Netherlands. I visited there ago and I’ve always wished I could have stayed longer! 

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t don't know much about their own country, much less anyone else's. :(

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them
know that others are thinking about their home. :)

This update is about your home!

Hey,
Thanks I think for this little message.
I guess it was meant well but I'm afraid you are knocking at the wrong door.
I've been christian in the past but I haven't been adhering to that faith ever since I was fourteen or so.
Partly because I was disgusted by the horrors perpetuated in Christianity's name and partly because the tenents of the faith do not fit with how I view the world.
Nowadays I am thoroughly pagan and proud of it.
So thank you but no thanks

Not knocking on anyone's door really.
Just letting people know about the history and conditions of other countries.
A lot of them I had never even HEARD of before and I'm sure I'm not alone.
I had posted that update about the Netherlands weeks ago and when I noticed
you were from there I thought you might like a peek at it. Wasn't trying to offend.

GOD bless

Well I think it is a bit superfluous to give an inhabitant an expos about his/her own country.
Especially since yours misses a couple of salient facts that greatly define the daily life of the Dutch.
The netherlands are extremely bike friendly. Most dutch bike most short distances.
The national color is orange. You see it everywhere on queensday/kingsday.
The dutch love ice-skating and are bloody good at it.
The netherlands have a royal family and most dutch love them very Much.
Our queen( Beatrix)recently abdicated in favour of her son ( Willem-Alexander).
And I could go one like that for hours.

Also You describe the Netherlands as decadent which is offensive especially since the practices that make you label the netherlands as decadent are practices I consider as freedoms everyone should be able the enjoy.

LGTB people have a right to equal rights and I am glad to live in a country that is so far along into granting them. I am glad to live in a country that legalises abortion. I may not always agree about when it is appropriate but it gives women a huge autonomy about their own bodies which is a basic right. I am glad to live in a crountry that legalises euthanasia. AT least doctors now do not face prosecution when they try to humanly alleviate suffering. I am glad to live in a country that legalises prostitution. At least now the ladies of the night get a voice and legal standing so that they may improve their working standard and leave the profession easily if they are so inclined.

Your call to pray for the Netherlands to become less decadent falls at the wrong door because I think the Netherlands are perfectly fine as they are except maybe for the immigration issue ( though it is a great deal less problematic than you make it out to be). ALso your call for the Netherlands to become more christian falls even more at the wrong door because I am Pagan, proud of it and really glad that the Netherlands is a country that is not defined by one religion but by the freedom to follow whatever religion you want.
