Given that the US is not alone in the world, some of our actions are reactions to actions on the part of others. While it is true that during a crisis people move to more traditional role models, it's also true that our reaction to the atheist mind set of the communist governments (Russian and Chinese) was to promote religion in a way it hadn't been promoted since pre Civil War days, prior to the Supreme Court decision to disallow state churches. (In God We Trust on the coinage, rewriting the pledge, etc.) The actions of the newly forming governments in the MidEast, IF they promote religious governments and not secular governments, might be expected (not required) to promote an opposite reaction in the US, thus diminishing the influence of the churches in government from their current role.

Thus, either atheism or a more secular US govt or both might be seen as a rising trend over the next saeculum as a reaction to a rising tide of religiously based governments elsewhere.

Just a thought. John, what do you think?
