'Why Religion Matters' to morality, charity and dignity
Mormon Newsroom published the commentary "Why Religion Matters: The Salt of Society" April 24, explaining how religion can add to the savor of society. The piece is the fourth essay in the five-part series "Why Religion Matters."
"Societies are complex organisms with untold layers, dimensions, facets and sensibilities," the essay reads. "Government, commerce, the arts, families and schools all play a part in vitalizing the body politic. And religion can help enliven these associations, instilling them with moral direction, charitable commitment and the force of dignity."
