“The lowest levels of religious belief and weekly church attendance in the world (possibly the lowest in history) are found in Northern European countries. These societies are not lacking in basic moral qualities. In fact, they may be the most tolerant, peaceful, compassionate, orderly societies that have ever existed. If that's the fate of countries that say goodbye to God, it will be a good day when we see the back of that old fraud.”
