The "Bible Belt" Norwegians

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

I love Norwegians

I travel around the country holding lectures about them

I understand that Norwegians aren't all the same

The Bible Belt Norwegians are special ones

They live in the South and to the West

They are highly religious

Throughout history they lived differently than the rest of the country

They forced a "new-Norwegian" language nynorsk upon the rest of Norway children

They do not like Alcohol

They like Jesus


They are contently happy

They are "gladkristne"


They prefer women to stay home to take care of children with subsidies from the state

Something which challenges modern Norwegian values

But which pleases other religious communities who recently immigrated to Norway


This summer our Head of Publishing and myself will be travelling through the Bible Belt

If you want to show us the beautiful side of it
