What moral freefall is Ken talking about? Hmm...what's he define as a moral freefall?
Oh, okay, so when Ken talks about a "moral freefall" he doesn't mean actual crime, he just means stuff that he doesn't like. Luckily for Ken, there's a place on earth where God is the centerpiece of all of daily life, abortion is almost totally illegal, sexual permissiveness is strongly discouraged, and morals are defined with absolute rigid certainty. Have fun, Ken. Don't forget to write.
...replacing God as the cultural centerpiece.... abortion, sexual permissiveness and moral relativism.
*These church attendance numbers may be somewhat higher than reality. Surveys like the ones cited above rely on self-reporting and thus are prone skewing because respondents tend to tailor their answers to fit what they think is socially acceptable. Since church attendance is still considered to be a morally desirable thing in this country, some respondents may be likely to answer "yes" to the standard "have you been to church in the last seven days" question even if they really haven't.
+ Don't get cocky though, both our violent crime rates and religiosity are unusually high compared to rest of the world.
