He's right. I am not even a religious person (raised RC but haven't been to church in 6 years) but even I can see that this country has run in the opposite direction of faith of any kind. But whenever a tragedy happens everyone runs back towards faith. Seems a bit hypocritical.
God is good.
I am not talking about eliminating the separation of church and state from gov't, nor is Paul. But on a personal level I think it is better for society for people to have some sort of faith. Infinitely more good has been done in the name of religion than bad. No matter what the atheists try to tell you.
