Referring to Mr. Gerrard Wilbur's Jan. 27 letter concerning his initial sentence, "The assumptions that America was founded on Christian principals is ludicrous" has me wondering. Mr. Wilbur, are you referring to the United States or all America, which includes all of North and South America, Central America, etc.?
I appreciate the fact that you are an atheist, but the fact is that all of America has roots in some form of religion whether popular or not.
True Christians worship and praise God for the countless blessings bestowed upon them every day. Without religion, America would be as empty as last year's birds nests. Sort of like vapid North Korea, if you will.
Without religion we revert to worshipping wizards, statues, mythical beings and so on. I understand that some atheists have formed "churches" or gatherings in a building. What do they talk about? What songs do they sing?
There is no imagination in religion. One look at the night sky is proof of the living God! Religion is the main spring; the tick that holds America together in the godless world.
Without that, Deuteronomy 32:29 tells us, "For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them."
