Maybe the old codger wasn't so bad after all

Here's a quote I stumbled across the other day that surprised me. Never thought I'd be wistful for the days of Reagan.
"We establish no religion in this country, we command no worship, we mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are, and must remain, separate. All are free to believe or not believe, all are free to practice a faith or not, and those who believe are free, and should be free, to speak of and act on their belief. At the same time that our Constitution prohibits state establishment of religion, it protects the free exercise of all religions. And walking this fine line requires government to be strictly neutral."
—Ronald Reagan

Ironic though that the level of belief among Americans is massively higher than in the UK!
Yes, and without the indoctrination of kids in school! Maybe we should be encouraging schools here to go heavy on religion!!
