Unstated in the article are the thoughts of folks who don't attend church
regarding their belief in God, or a higher power. My experience in dealing with
others who are not religious is a high percentage believe there's something
beyond this life, there is a higher power. As a friend put it,
"I believe in God, I believe in the Golden Rule, we don't need to get
together and talk about it every week."This doesn't mean
people are hopelessly lost and bound to moral decline, with selfish anarchy
about to ensue. This also doesn't mean we're on the precipice of the
2nd Coming of Jesus.Canada seems like a very nice place where crime
is lower than the US, Canadians seem like very kind and caring people, very
interested in supporting and helping each other. If the fear is the US is
headed down the sad road that has afflicted Canada, maybe there not that much to
be afraid of.
Good to see that the young Canadians "get it".
