I, too, read the article comparing religious faith and education (Religion, happiness and education levels, Voice of the people, Jan. 10). Like many others I, too, inferred that "us po'', dumb, illiterate Southerners believe in God ''cause we just don''t know better" while them smart-alecky, edjikated yam Dankees do. Then someone compared our religious fervor with other educated countries and found the same correlation- the better educated the population is the less likely they are to put much faith in God. Then someone hit the nail on the head: most of those countries are MORE LIBERAL than the USA.
Liberalism, by its very nature, tends to destroy while Conservatism tends to save. Could it be that (Liberalism) be the real reason why so many people aren''t very religious? Hmmm...could be.
