Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yup, it has become a specifically US American phenomenon.  The religious zealots, thank God, left Europe when they feared that their kids might become  influenced and thus, in their eyes, corrupted by the exposure to a too liberal European culture.

 what is this historical gibberish supposed to mean? Religious zealots left for America in the early seventeenth century. I could just as easily characterize Europe as inherently fascist and imperialist or ultra conservative or dirt poor, or feudal or hellishly chaotic, or racist, or whatever other reasons that people had to come to America.
