Near-Record High See Religion Losing Influence in America

Near-Record High See Religion Losing Influence in America

 by Frank Newport

 PRINCETON, NJ -- Seven in 10 Americans say religion is losing its influence on American life -- one of the highest such responses in Gallup's 53-year history of asking this question, and significantly higher than in the first half of the past decade. Rest of the article

 I would like to draw a comparison to the loss of religion here versus our decay in our general morals and decency here in the country. It seems that the further we get away from religion the worse we become as a society, Love thy neighbor has become who is my neighbor? 

It used to be that a church was a magnet drawing people in, making them closer, stronger, unified, it was a part of your everyday life. Today not so much, most children are not brought up in a church setting anymore, they would rather rot their minds in front of the television or latest game system further distancing themselves from good values.
