The media continue to help the nation feel even worse. It's not enough that the markets have been tanking (despite a welcome surge today) and the day's events are so negative, now there's an increase in news about how America is "losing its religion".

Note to the "experts" God has been declared dead before. Many times. It's not going to work.
