Lazarus = El Azar = Osiris It's basically a retelling of the Ancient Egyptian story of how Horus went around looking for Osiris's body parts, put them back together and brought him back to life. They didn't even bother changing the name (of Osiris... of course Horus became Jesus).

If they didn't bother changing the names, how come the Roman version of Greek mythology where the name were changed is commonly known to be a variation on the same myth, while the Biblical myth is only doubted by a few rather off-the-rails individuals? The stories are nothing alike; the only similarity is the resurrection of Lazarus/Osiris, and even they are completely different (one mortal, the other immortal; one caused by a simple word, the other by reassembling a body in Frankenstein-esque fashion).

More to the point: lithium compounds are classified as mood stabilizers, not antidepressants.

The Protestant denomination one stumped me, because first I thought of Church of England but then realised that they wouldn't have that in America. Then I thought of Anglican - oh, wait, that stems from a word meaning ENGLISH! I couldn't think of any others except Methodism.

Anglicanism is the theological basis of many English-speaking Protestant churches, so it's not a bad guess. Baptism is by far the most common form of US Protestantism though.

I'm Pennsylvania Dutch on both sides of my family, and no one is Amish. Pennsylvania Dutch means someone of German heritage and one of various Protestant faiths who historically resided in Pennsylvania and would have known a dialect of German known as Pennsylvania Dutch or Pennsylvania German. There are far more Pennsylvania Dutch who are not Amish than who are. My relatives are Lutheran and Methodist. And, honestly, to suggest that all Amish renounce all modern inventions is also inaccurate; communities typically can collectively decide what technology, if any, to embrace. I'd reword to "What religious group often renounces modern inventions and are identified among the " 'Pennsylvania Dutch'?" or something along those lines.
