    That's a poor showing for religion. Perhaps if more people decided to live their religion instead of acting hypocrically it would change.

    Although honestly I think the institution that should be most admired wasn't even mentioned: The family.

    Indeed, the family...in all its permutations...is the foundation of any civilized society. As for religion, it's too liable to fall into the path of a cult of personality. Televangelists in the US are a case in point. THere are examples in all the world's religions which are simply too numerous to mention.
