We have posted many research articles on this web site about the importance of strong families to society.  We have also posted research articles that reveal the importance of faith and religiosity to a strong society.  Here is a brief of research findings showing the link between both strong faith and strong families, which in turn make for strong neighborhoods, cities, states and our nation from the Heritage Foundation.    For example, families with strong religious faith who regularly attend church services have lower rates of domestic violence, less marital disruption and better inter-family relationships than the non-religious.   Take a look at the findings showing the benefits of faith for families here:  http://www.familyfacts.org/briefs/33/religious-practice-and-family-stability
