Right On

First, slight correction. America might be the least secularist society in the world. We are the most religious nation and more than double the number of fundamentalists/literalists than even the Muslim nations. You cannot even disagree with religion in this politically-correct country without being raked over the coals by the masses.

Other than that, I agree. If you look at the history of the megachurches - they began with the takeover of the Neoconservatives. They are not paid for with tithes, that is for sure. The religious takeover of the country began in the 50's. So, I guess to answer your question - religion comes from government, or more specifically, the governing/banking elite.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
