I'm Irish.

I think we are perceived as a rowdy country of wife-beating catholic alcoholics. The alcoholic thing is justified, the wife-beating thing isn't, and as for religion, people believe in god in some vague, misty way, and claim to be catholic, yet no one has read the Bible.

I think most countries perceive America as being extremely controlling, hypocritical, shallow, stupid Jesus freaks. I HATE living here

Yup, sounds about right. I've met a lot of nice Americans, but the ones I've met all have that naive, unthinking way of viewing their lives and their countries, and above all their religions.
