Although my memory is faulty, I recall a claim that we've lost  or are
losing our because  of the rise of secular humanism, agnosticism, communism,
athieism  all the old bugaboos...when, in fact, the stats (I saw them a
couple of weeks ago) suggest just the opposite.  Therefore, your fear of a
resurgence is not supported by history. We've been there, done that and
survived quite nicely. To me  such worries have a familiar John Birchian
ring to them, no offense intended.
