The United States, founded in 1776 as a secular republic [1], is a country with significant freedom of religion, thought and speech due to strong constitutional protection. However, recent court rulings regarding freedom of conscience has given special privileges to religious beliefs. Religious groups also command significant influence in United States politics.

More strongly religious states within the US have a lower quality of life (Mississippi and Alabama). More secular states in the US have a higher quality of life (Vermont and New Hampshire).[2]

"If [the United States] should perish, the ruthlessness of the foe would be only the secondary cause of the disaster. The primary cause would be that the strength of a great nation was directed by eyes too blind to see all the hazards of the struggle; and the blindness would be induced not by some accidence of nature or history but by hatred and vainglory."

Reinhold Niebuhr
