As it stands, we are the transition stage. We have no structure, there is no black and white, we live in a clouded time. All questions are being answered again, because the past is no longer the present. No person knows if our corrections are correct, but they do know it is what the majority wants. The question which is rarely looked at, and that will be looked at in this paper, is the effects which this transition is having on society. This paper is going to attempt to reveal the results, of the removal of religious education and support. The literature involved is going to display the direct, and indirect effects, of not being brought up to believe a certain religion, but to choose your own, no matter what it is.The past beliefs on religious support and education are displayed in the words of Aristotle;'Moral virtues come from habit...

Although this decline in church attendance is a direct result of the removal of religious support and education. It is not one of the more revealing consequences.A poll done by the Angus Reid Group shows that eighty-three percent of Canadians, find that their greatest joy in life was their family. 3 The distressing information found was, sixty-three percent of the people who stated family was their greatest joy, also felt Canadian families are in great distress.
