Remember the Sabbath?
The polling data tell us that Americans are a religious people, the large majority of whom attend church, believe in God and pray daily. But you wouldn’t know it from a typical Sunday, where the malls are hopping, the movie theaters packed, and the roads clogged with cars and bikers. Though we might possibly still remember the Sabbath day, in the land of perpetual fun we surely don’t keep it holy.
