Absolutely, Jamie. I recall during the Clinton scandals, an Austrailian mentioned the difference between America and Austrailian settlers who came from England - America got the Puritans and Austrailia got the exiled criminals. He gave thanks for that. Our Puritanical values have so little to do with what Christ's message was all about; I find it almost paradoxical.
It was the Samaritan woman at the well that Jesus first acknowledged his divinity to. Imagine that! A woman with 5 husbands and the man she was currently living with she wasn't even married to, but Jesus found her worthy to be the first to know that he was indeed the messiah. And he didn't even demand she repent!
