@chawainwords,

There's a lot of people on this site who have a very personal experience with religion and they're American as well. I'm not one of them but I did do some American history and have seen enough programs on the religious history of America.

It's not all about religion as to the problems in America. The media, education and general attitude has a lot to do with it. Though strict religious thinking causes a lot of problems there is a large portion of the American public who probably are not like that but just simply don't care, this is truly the issue. People go about their lives with the attitude of, "if it's not affecting me I don't care". This attitude is everywhere by the way not just the US.
