The Republican party has been dominated of late by a discussion of the sexual-trifecta of gay marriage, abortion, and contraception. But are these the only values that matter?

America lives with the profound contradiction of a nation that is at once incredibly religious but increasingly decadent. In the United States 92 percent of Americans believe in G-d. But given the deep spiritual orientation of the American people, how are we to understand the even deeper materialistic impulses that had us spending $52.4 billion on Black Friday weekend shopping alone? And given the American people’s strong disposition to family, what could account for the inability of approximately one of two couples to stay married?
