Are you aware that many Eastern European countries are actually very secular? Don't forget that communism persecuted religion and Poland is quite an exception in this regard. And even there, your theory may prove wrong. What is the "info distributed in church"? Most sermons have nothing to do with politics, different priests have different opinions, and people DO have their views even if they are religious. In 1995 presidential election the church backed Walesa - and he lost. Since that time church officials have been much more prudent and avoid taking sides in politics. Radio Maryja was vehemently opposed to Poland's entry to the European Union - and so what? In the referendum more than 70% voted in favor and now very few are unhappy with the EU. And what is the allusion to "opinions formed by the exchanges over drinks" for? People in Western Europe don't discuss politics in pubs? And how do you measure whether people develop "their own take"?
