"western" europe :) Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia are quite religious (Hungary recently amended its Constitution to start with
“We are proud that our King Saint Stephen has created our country, Hungary, with strong foundations at a thousand years had taken our country as member of Christian Europe” and "God bless Hungary"

“it protects the institution of marriage as between a man and a woman, a matrimonial relation, voluntarily established”.

and Russia is returning in droves back to Christianity.

The light of Christ has been shining stronger in the East, as it dies in the West.

"Western" Europe.

You are absolutely right... I should've drawn that distinction. Those former Warsaw Pact countries (excluding Russia) also have a low number of muslims as well.

great post!
...and many Russians never left, except “officially”.
i had the honor to attend some small rural services in Russia, and was very impressed with the quiet devotion.
(no pews or seats either. standing, or kneeling on stone floor only.)

and Moscow denied gays permission to even have a “parade”,
even after the EU threatened them with charges of “human rights violations”.

...”and Russia is returning in droves back to Christianity.”

Can you elaborate Cronos?
