Chuck Norris Has It Right

Norris is quoted recently in the March 3, 2008 Washington Times as saying: Once upon a time, churches served as moral centers of a community. Of course, not any longer. And as Theodore Roosevelt once said, "In this actual world, a churchless community, a community where men have abandoned and scoffed at, or ignored their Christian duties, is a community on the rapid downgrade."

Do we now believe we can consider morality and religion optional without suffering civil and social repercussions, despite the warning of our Founding Fathers, such as John Adams, [that] "Our Constitution was made for only a moral and [Christian] people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other"?

If Psalm 33:12 says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord," then what will be the state of blessedness for the nation that abandons God and His moral code of conduct?
