Religion in the public square

"What we believe--or don't believe--about God profoundly shapes what we believe about the nature of the human person and the purpose of human society. It follows that the more we remove God from our public life, the more we remove the moral vocabulary that gives our public institutions meaning. The more secularized we become, the more we undermine the common good and the more we feed the problems that are hurting us as a nation." Charles J. Chaput, archbishop of Philadelphia, “We can’t be silent,” First Things, May 2014
