"By its nature, monogamy isn’t easy" (Opinion, David Barash, Nov. 28) was interesting.

Wow, monogamy proving to be beneficial to both partners and their offspring — what a revelation!

It is only telling us what Christianity has been teaching for the past 2,000-plus years. Does it really take science to tell us something that religion has already espoused?

Religion doesn’t seek to impose restrictions and discipline on human behavior for no reason, it does it because human beings are happier when they have structure and boundaries in their lives.

Don’t whine to me about "freedom" of choice. If everyone had "freedom" and could do "whatever they wanted," our world would be a disaster.

The fact that many people in America do "what they want" anyway has become evident by the number of social ills affecting our country.

Can anyone say there is a direct correlation between the alarming rise of social problems and the decline of religion in the everyday person’s life?
