133. Your list is on the money.... but...
.... I don't want anyone who thinks prayer is a solution to anything. This "norm" is as nutty as worrying about witches.

I don't know about you, but I think when things suck, it is good for the business of religion. Religion WANTS things to be in the crapper. When all hope is gone, many who in normal circumstances don't think twice about religion, except maybe on Sundays and holidays, will in desperation turn to ancient superstitions. A crappy economy is good for religion. A good economy and a government that helps its citizens (what else is it supposed to do?) that is not fighting some war somewhere, will erode the very need for supernatural solutions.
