A post in another thread reminded me of how often I hear people say something along the lines of America used to be great/godly/moral and is now headed toward something dire.
If you feel this way, can you please describe how? I find only evidence of overall improved "morality" (quotes to indicate the varying definitions of morality), so I'm curious what areas are in decline. Is the decrease in church attendance associated with morality? Do you think our society is moving toward secularization, and if so, how has that influenced morality? (In measurable terms.) Do you think that pesky bugger, nostalgia, lends to misperception?
