There has been a lot of back and forth at the places I post (Classical Values and Power and Control) about America becoming an immoral nation. So I have to asks a question of my readers and especially those commenting on my various posts. What can make America the moral nation that so many seem to crave?
Can government make people moral?
If so why did we give up on all the goodness that alcohol prohibition was responsible for?
OK. Scratch that. It seems that when government gets involved in the morality business it only makes things worse.
America is a mainly Christian church going nation – so can churches make people moral?
If so why are so many people who have had church weddings divorced? Why are there so many children of divorce from parents married in church?
OK. Government can’t make people moral and churches are failing at the job as well.
Any one care to suggest fall back position?
