If you measure decency by sex and profanity, the US is far better than Europe. In terms of generosity, America is the top country in the world, but we are also the richest. But being more moral than atheist Europe is a pretty low bar. Why not be as good as we can be in both departments?I guess if you measure the decency and morality by how much profanity and sex there is in our movies, then we certainly would rank pretty low and Iran and Saudi Arabia would rank pretty close to number one. However, if you measure the morality of our nation based on how well it comes to the aid of our neighbors next door, across the county and across the oceans, the USA would rank pretty high. I for one, believe the latter is a far better guide to morality of a nation than the former.
