“Monsters are monsters, it seems, for want of enough lectures”

Tony Woodlief writes in reference to this story coming out of Detroit where a local prosecutor suggests parenting classes as a solution:

While we lose the traditions and practices of civility and self-restraint, while we laugh at the Church as anything more than a sentimental attachment, while we imagine that all the institutions that separated Western civilization from brutal, dirt-grubbing subsistence are capable of being refit to our wants, we maintain, throughout this insanity, an undying faith in the classroom to set all things to rights. Monsters are monsters, it seems, for want of enough lectures.

We’re all religious.  We divide on faith’s object… to society’s detriment.
