Having lived in the US since the 80s I am amazed at how many principles that I once took for granted are now up for debate. Is what is happening now a "correction" back to times when religion was a more integral part of public functions such as schools, judiciary, government?

Things like this always bring to mind the following quote:

“For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the Beatitudes (Matthew 5). But, often with tears in their eyes, they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public buildings. And of course, that's Moses, not Jesus. I haven't heard one of them demand that the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, be posted anywhere. 'Blessed are the merciful' in a courtroom? 'Blessed are the peacemakers' in the Pentagon? Give me a break!”
