Becoming a third world nation?

Probably, but it's not because of religion, it's because of unbridled greed.

From where I live I don't see it becoming a third world. And I don't think religion has anything to do with it unless its the fact that praying doesn't always help. You gotta get out there help.

yes we are and it is from the lack of Christian values. we as a nation don't want to take a hard line on any moral platform. it's a lot easier to say live and let live but unfortunately being pc is going to be the end of this great nation.
