You're an idiot, Carl. You want to discredit religion as an influence for civil society while ignoring that crime, child abuse, perversity and all manner of inhumanity have always increased in any society that turns it's back on God. The problem in Mexico is not about the people's level of religiosity but the corruption that has invaded their political system from top to bottom. Further, your assertion that Mexicans are inherently violent is just plain racist. I'm not surprised though, it's you godless liberal types that have always been the true racists while pointing fongers at others.

As our focus continues to be on the violence in the Middle East, it is also important to pay attention to what is going on just south of our own border in Mexico. The war between the Mexican government and drug cartels is still raging with the war's latest victim being female Mayor Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who was beaten, burned, tortured and dumped for dead on the side of the road. Before being killed, Gorrostieta had been attacked twice by cartels for daring to challenge them. The third attack they waged on her, was her last.
