Religion and Culture: America v Europe

Via Razib, here is a study (pdf) which compares attitudes towards religious and cultural homogeneity:

“American exceptionalism” emerges fairly clearly. Relative to almost all European nations, fewer Americans endorse cultural or religious homogeneity, and the differences between the U.S. and these other nations are almost always statistically significant.

Britons seem more bothered by notions of culture (‘customs and traditions’) than religion. Around 25% agreed with the need for shared religion while this number nearly doubled when the question was about shared customs and traditions. In France this difference was even more noticeable.
