What is “civil religion”???? That “religion” that doesn’t espouse “social justice” (socialism) and chaos?

Civil religion is a broad religious culture that has generally agreed upon principals although very different doctrine. Civil religion is usually accepted even by those who are nonreligious because the effects are generally benign or positive.
America's civil religion is Judeo-Christian. Or maybe I should say was. That was why society in general was tolerant of prayer in public events and generally frowned on out of wedlock pregnancy.
The death of Civil Religion leads to more chaos as there are no longer generally accepted mores. There is only law. And government expands more and more to fill the vacancy left.
