3. The assumption that everyone is deeply religious. I'm not even shallowly religious. I don't believe in God, and the same is true for many of my countrymen (although we are fond of a church bake sale). Many Americans look at me aghast when I say I'm an atheist, as if I've just told them I've kidnapped their children. I must admit, though, it does make me wonder what I'd do if I was ever called to court as a witness and asked to swear on the Bible.
