Sigh... I miss Louisiana, but am deep in the heart of Texas now, which is okay. To this thread's point, my two favorite places in Louisiana are Lafayette and Ruston. Lafayette's basically the Cajun capital, with a concentration of the culture from the surrounding areas in their purest form. Ruston is more like how I feel a "Southern" town should be. It's got a little Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana feel sorta combined into it. I love both places, and they're both drastically different. I grew up in North Louisiana though, so I guess I feel a little more culturally "at home" in Ruston, but I'd enjoy living in either place. They do kinda illustrate the differences between the two sides of Louisiana though.

That's one reason I don't like attending church.

I know this thread was started in 2009, but I wanted to put this out there as an answer to the original question.

Northern Louisiana is more like the rest of the south, southern Louisiana is where you'll find the cultures unique to this state. New Orleans in the east, Cajuns in the west.

Though I will admit that parishes that are east of BR and north of the big lakes are pretty much just like Mississippi.

Well, if you don't feel the need to be part of the Church you can hardly call yourself a Catholic - at best a theist or some sort of individualistic protestant.

Religion here can turn the wrong way really fast. But you don't need to go to church to be a part of the church.

I was born and raised as a catholic and it has become a title that is on My birth certificate and many other documents over the past years so I have the right to call myself what I have been labled weither are not I participate in going to church or not. It is called Freedom of speach.
