I was initially puzzled when I read from PZ that South Korea is taking evolution out of its textbooks. Sure there are some pretty hardcore Christians here, but on the whole my impression of South Korea has been of a pretty secular country.
For example: when I was talking to my co-workers about Korean weddings one day, I was surprised to learn that weddings here are normally a purely secular affair, without even a Buddhist or Confucian element, and they happen not in churches or temples but in “wedding halls” that do nothing but have weddings. They, on the other hand, were surprised to learn that the default place for weddings in America is churches. Where do people who aren’t religious have weddings? they asked. (Answer: a variety of places, but there’s no standard answer because secular weddings are still somewhat unusual.)
