    Thanks. I found this paragraph particularly apropos (appropriate, pertinent) here for the determined agnostic/atheists amongst US.

    Another is to cultivate participation in organized religion. Young men who attend church weekly commit far fewer murders than those who do not. But this too is anathema to the Left. The secular Left never offers mainstream American religions as a solution to social problems. To do so, like emphasizing fathers, would shift the blame from guns to the criminal users of guns.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    That's a very good point. One may certainly choose to be an agnostic or atheist, but one cannot legitimately deny the impact of the Judeo-Christian worldview on the culture of the United States.

    As a secular Jew with a bent toward history, Dennis Prager is well positioned to educate and inform in these areas.

    Lots of truth in that article. But, as he said, the Left doesn't want to hear it.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
