    This is the kind of fuzzy, feel-good nonsense that permeates our social science classes in modern education. We just need to learn about America and things American including American religions! We are here. They are there. And there is a big, bad ocean separating us and that’s good. So what if we don’t know about Shinto, Hindu, Dao or Buddha…they all end in vowels anyway so what’s up with that??? It’s a language conspiracy to undermine American religious values. Protestant, Catholic, Jew, Mormon…do any of these end in a vowel? Let’s get back to basics, people!
