Lessons from Hungary

Social atheism, such as the godless U.S. Constitution enshrines, is not inevitable.  (I never thought it was, but some Hegelians do think that and therefore would march us all in that direction).  Look at what's going on in Hungary.  I celebrated the preconditions of Hungary's now turning its government schools over to religious institutions here, responding to James Davison Hunter's premature burial of religious institutions. Thirty-two percent of Americans want a Christian constitutional amendment, according to a Huffington Post/You Gov poll.  The Framers knew what they were doing, alas, when they sought to make it virtually impossible to amend their godless Constitution.
