No, I don't mean an atheist. I mean a theist. A theist is someone who has some vague philosophical or intuitive notion of the existance of God but doesn't partake in any religion, and certainly is not a Christian.

Whether I think a Catholic is better than a theist is out of the question. I don't define Catholic theology - the Church does. It's defined by things like the Gospels, tradition, the chatecism...it's not some kind of New Age pick'n'mix...But it's not your fault, it's the hierarchy's fault. If they don't seem to have a clue about what they stand for they can hardly expect the flock to know.

As for freedom of speech, it grants you the right to say whatever you want to say without going to jail, but it doesn't make you immune to be challenged when you talk nonsense.

(Rolls up sleeves, sips last nites drink from "Mustang Sallys", a college nite club in Funroe aka Monroe)

Ok first of all let me make my comments on the north and southern louisiana. Im gonna simply say this, Southern Louisiana is very, very distinct in the fact that the cultures and customs are very plentiful due to the various migrations throughout history. Thus, it stands out beyond what we kno as the traditional southern atmosphere. Northern Louisiana is the typical south, but where it stands out compared to the rest of the south is people here(northern louisiana) are very......stubborn in there personal ways, historical ways, and political ways like no other state.

No area here in North Louisiana has an overall or predominant atmosphere like the vibes of N.O. and Baton Rouge. Sure if you adopt a certain area of Northern Louisiana its gonna be great as long as you follow in within their ways. I think "NSUinstructor" hit it dead on the head. Once upon a time, St. Francis hospital in Monroe's downtown would secretly create ways not to accept laboring mothers who will have children out of wedlock. The more establish cities or towns are fueding with neighboring towns causing an overall identity crisis when your talking about an individual metro area having an overall atmosphere, like a Lafayette or Baton Rouge. You drive througe their metros u will feel the same vibe through out. You drive throught a Northern metro, it will be vibrant one minute, racist the next, religious a couple of miles down, and country the next. The silly small 200 -1000 population tiny village towns surrounding the bigger cities are due to stubborn ways instead of coming together for some greater, like southern Louisiana. And thats all im gonna say on that.

Monroe......time and time again I defend Monroe, LA to the bone. I have lived here for the majority of my life. Left here, lived in Shreveport(wow, u wanna talk about crime?), family in Baton Rouge(wow, u wanna talk about a foul smelling place?), partied hard in New Orleans(i think N.O. can speak for itself) and thru it all, I have found out that Monroe, LA is the most relaxing, "go getting city" of all Louisiana. I mean seriously, you wanna talk about high school football we dominant the state, West Monroe has more championships than anybody, then Bastrop is elite. Theres no great LSU football without northern Louisiana players!!!! Are u guys seriously comparing,saying northern Louisiana has no identity and we are more like Arkansas, Texas, or Mississippi? As far as I know, Arkansas is a sad state with retirement culture, and outside of Little Rock.....umm who cares. You kno how many people travel from southern Arkansas to go to our schools, shop here, tour here, and love it here in Northern Louisiana daily? Not to mention thousands from Texas that come to Shreveport every weekend.(Now if u really wanna go there, u can make a strong arguement that Shreveport is more like Texas, i mean they have basements everywhere, Louisiana dont have basements????)

I can go all day, but put the focus on Monroe. Monroe is a very interesting "city" that everyday would be an adventure. Monroe can be describe as a hidden treasure maze because, literally everthing great here is hidden and is a big suprise. Im still shocked daily when i ride around, I found a beach recently, atv parks, amusement parks, wild life parks, and still finding bayous. Even the college, ULM sits on a bayou giving it great scenery. I kinda like the fact that in Monroe, you have to look closely to find the treasures like, Enoch's irish pub, Mohawk Tavern, The Hooking Bull, The Louisiana Purchases Garden & Zoo(now thats really hidden). The Monroe Street Car that rides are for tourist, The 2 Motor speedways(nascar just made a deal with us!!!), The Garden District, Frenchmens Bend, The Boat Docks are hidden, the great eats on the river are hidden............. so many hidden treasure all here for you to venture out and find daily, Like the WWII Museum, Masur Museum of Art, Biedenharn Museum and Gardens, The Black Bayou Refuge is very interesting if u want to get a feel for Louisiana lifestyle. Oh yeah, be sure to try out Johnnys pizza, so unique. It orginated here in Monroe, as well as the Delta Airlines and one of the nations first Coca Cola Bottling companys. I'll stop here, and calm down. But dont worry palmtrees_are_kool, I'll give you the indepth feedback u need, intead of this speculation, non - residental, passer by, northern louisiana aka monroe - haters' talking..... now quote away!!!!!

Oh yeah.....Monroe and Natchitoches are the only northen Louisiana places that can give you the best of both world as far as northern and southern Louisiana!!!

i feel that the whole state of Louisiana is unlike anywhere else in the whole country. The northern part is very interesting and has true Louisiana cajun culture and food. the southern part like new orleans is city like, and has a culture that is different with partying great music, and interesting things to do and some fine restaurants. I do feel that the state seems to have ways that they do things different from other parts of the country. though i really do not know much about Arkansas. I feel Louisiana IS DIFFERENT THAN TEXAS.

Northern Louisiana is not interesting outside of a few towns and is nothing like south Louisiana. South Louisiana is much more than New Orleans.

North La and south La are very very different. I find north La to be more quiet, religious, slow and laid back way of life. More "countrified".

South La more open minded and more partying, later nights, better restaurants and overall more fun if you like action.

There's nothing, at all, Cajun about Northern Louisiana. It is Anglo and Protestant just like East Texas, Mississippi and Arkansas.
