>>Are we a national family or are we just a 
bunch of people who happen to live in the 
same place?<<

--Apparently we're enough of a national family that we
want to protect traditional marriage models and
abortion (not to mention ban "obscenity" on the
airwaves... for the children, of course), but not so
much a family that we want to take care of people who
can't take care of themselves, except by forcing them
to go to churches for care, which probably suits the
evangelicals nicely. Ending the "welfare state" (that
word really implies something it's not) would result
in a huge potential crop of converts for churches,
unless private secular orgs manage to get enough
donations to do more. Of course, that amounts to a big
"church tax" unless churches get public money to help
people. It's interesting how "faith-based programs"
are NOT accused of promoting socialism, while secular
programs funded with tax money are.
