> May I put in my tangential two cents worth? Organized religion is a necessary fiction that helps keep families intact. 

Begging your pardon - I'm not certain if you meant this seriously or not.  Presently, families of agnostics and atheists have lower divorce rates that Christians ... especially evangelical Christians. 

> Though a religion may have no real meaning, it gives families a purpose; for instance on Sunday morning a family dresses up, goes to church, prays, and sings hymns-- breaking up the commercially-oriented week and giving the family a more positive attitude.

OK, OK ... I'm starting to get it.  You're joking.  Tee hee.
