I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Tyrol for me. Voralberg would be fine as well.

Only 4% protestants in Austria so it doesnt really matter. There is no place with a high share of Lutherans.

Carinthia is next with about 11%.

Well the US has a lower percentage of Jews but that doesn't mean there aren't any areas with a high Jewish concentration. Also I think Austria would have a higher percentage of Lutherans than the US too. Unfortunately neither state Tender mentioned looks too appealing. Tongue

Why would you base your decision about where to live on how many Evangelicals there are in a certain state ?

It's not like Austrians Protestants are nearly as fundie as their US counterparts ...

Well yes, which is a good thing of course. Everyone knows I like Lutherans*, and am not so fond the Southern Baptists or Catholic Church.

But of course, if hipster Christians exist anywhere in Austria, it'd be Vienna.

*Well not all in the US of course, since you also have a few fundie ones like Michele Bachmann, but as you noted they are far less common in Austria.

How do you define hipster Christians ? Because there are almost no practising Christians anymore in Austria between the ages of 15 and 40, only Christians on paper.

Hmm...that's tough. I can come up with a good reason to live in a couple. Salzburg seems like the ideal balance, all things considered. I need to have access to a major city or I'll go crazy, but there's also the mountains and countryside. I do love Vienna though...and Innsbruck.

Well that means being Christian is not mainstream....but as I said if there are any, they'd be in Vienna. I'm not sure if there are any hipster churches outside the US, Canada and Australia, hence why I've been joking with oakvale in IRC that if he moves to Canada I'm going to visit and convert him.

Yeah, you can go to Munich and Vienna in a few hours and to the mountains/countryside in ... half an hour. And you can go to Linz/Innsbruck and Graz within a few hours as well.

Do you mean activist Christians as hipster ? Like those people similar to BushieOK that are flying to Kenya or other African countries to build houses or adopt children from there because they think they can make the world better because of this ? Yeah, you will probably find a very small amount of these people in Vienna or other bigger cities, whereas you go into some random church in rural Austria and 95% of the people who are in there are 60 or older, with the other 5% being underage altar boys/girls, kneeling to the feet of the priest.

LOL no Bushie is not a hipster, he's just a Southern Baptist going to some standard fire and brimstone fundie church. Though my church did send some people to China last month to help organize illegal house churches and a lot of other hipster churches do stuff like that, yes. This site sums it up well, and the closest thing to a hipster Christian magazine that exists would be Relevant Magazine. So basically making Christianity modern and relevant, not like the type of thing you just described in a rural Catholic church. Like the church I went to this morning has services that have more resemblence to those indie rock shows I go to than a Catholic Mass.

Sad Bleh, one thing I don't like about Europe is that the inner cities do often have bad politics, unlike North America where there's usually a direct correlation between how good a place votes and how otherwise desirable it is to live in.
