this is in no way a "bash louisville" post, just an observation by someone who has traveled a lot.
Then you must not be choosing the friends who care enough to invite you to church. Doesn't mean that churches don't have hypocrites, because on any given day, I qualify, but it does mean that hypocrites in church are in a place where like cancer, there is hope for a cure.

i don't see any mention of "church" in my post. I was comparing overall attitudes of the populace of places i have lived. what, exactly, does church have to do with it? unlike others, i don't judge or lump people into groups based on what they do or do not believe. your beliefs are your beliefs, who am i to question them? sometimes i just wish others respected MY beliefs as much as i respect theirs.

My info:

- We anticipate being in Louisville for at least a few years, and would like to buy a house. We would prefer to spend around $250K, but could go as high as $300K for the right house.
- My husband is accoustomed to a commute of about 15 - 20 minutes, and wouldn't tolerate much more than that.
- We have an elementary-school aged son. We'd like to find an area with a really good public school.
- We currently live in St. Louis, in an inner-ring suburb. We like being close to the city, but a bit outside it.
- We like to go out quite a bit, and would love to be near restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. as well as close to recreation for our son, such as parks, children's museums, zoo, etc.
- Definitely cake.

Also, we are not religious people, and do not attend church. We would like to move to a place where our neighbors would welcome heathens like us with open arms without trying to 'save' us. St. Louis is a pretty conservative city, but I fear Louisville will be even more conservative...
Err.... I do believe that the last paragraph does contain an anti-church comment. Then in a later in the thread there was a post with a negative comment about well meaning church people.

I am not a Bible thumper, I won't try to "save" you as you put it, but I don't mind having a conversation with you about the pros and cons of a religious lifestyle. No judgement on my part, but you did write a very judgemental comment against a lot of well meaning people. So, I attempted, and will continue to offer explanation when good people are unjustly demeaned.

I have lived in Kentucky all my life, and I can not ever remember being personally approached by someone trying to save my soul. I have invited friends to visit my church, but not until there was an indication of desire to be invited.

Inviting somebody to curch is NOT the same as going up to the door and saying GOD IS REAL! or GOD IS NOT REAL!

I have been invited to churches before. I just politley say no thank you. I don't get my head bitten off and the neighbors still talk to me.

First of all, no one was shouting, lol.
why not introduce yourself to your new neighbors and ask why they have no children, or how much their household income? I am simply making the point that inviting strangers to worship might seem like a friendly thing to do, but some people might find it to be quite presumptuous and rude. I would never assume upon introduction to bring my beliefs to the forefront of the conversation. and if i did, as i stated earlier, i think the reception would not be a polite "no thank you". this is not a forum for debate of these topics, so i will refrain from any further comment. I did not intend to offend, and i hope everyone enjoys the rest of their days in peace.

FWIW you didn't offend me, and I'm sorry if I gave the impression that you did.

Sorry for the caps, didn't indicate mean to that anybody was shouting. It's just the comment was made that it was a bit much to be invited to church, and you responded with "how would we be greeted if we knocked on doors with brochures saying "god is not real"? i would imagine after not so many doors that violence would ensue.lol" That statement to me doesn't equal somebody asking you to church. apples and oranges

That being said, if somebody came to my door stating God wasn't real I personally wouldn't have a problem with that. To each his own. [Tho to tell you the truth, I rarely answer the door if it's not somebody I know. I'm rude like that. lol] It's only when anybody coming to the door - no matter religion, politics, sales, etc. - and tries to force their way into my house, or refuses to let me shut the door, THAT's when I have a problem, and "violence might ensue". :-)

This is an old thread and I see the Highlands has been suggested but additional considerations are Crescent Hill and Clifton.

that would be "there ARE no good public schools in louisville", or were you just trying to make a point?
