Jonah (interesting name for an atheist, btw)... the fact is, one cannot separate moral conduct from a belief in God (and a belief in the TRUE God, at that; there are lots of 'false gods' out there). The 10 Commandments are a good starting point; hopefully, belief and adherence to them will eventually lead you to a saving faith in Jesus Christ, the ONLY person who was able to KEEP the law, in all its points. Absent a belief in the True God, and His moral precepts, we simply have moral chaos, with each person doing what is right in his own eyes, which leads ultimately to tyranny and slavery (the direction this society is heading)
For some years now, we have been told about a major division within American conservatism: fiscal conservatives vs. social conservatives.

This division is hurting conservatism and hurting America -- because the survival of American values depends on both fiscal and social conservatism. Furthermore, the division is logically and morally untenable. A conservative conserves all American values, not just economic ones.

By "social conservatism," I am referring to the second and third components of what I call the American Trinity -- liberty, "In God We Trust" and "E Pluribus Unum."

It is worth noting that a similar bifurcation does not exist on the left. One...
