When the CLICK MAGAZINE article appeared on the newsstands at the close of 1942, the American people were fully committed to a war on two fronts that quite often was not generating the kinds of headlines they would have preferred reading. As a result, Americans turned to the church for spiritual and emotional support:

"Two years ago most churches were considered fortunate if forty-five people attended the morning service; today devout worshipers fill the pews morning and night."

During the war years hundreds and hundreds of forts, camps and training facilities were built all over the United States - the great majority of them had churches - as a result, the American military went on record as being the largest builder of churches in history.

Oddly, we have another article printed ten years earlier that states the opposte view; this article maintains that the bad old days of the Great Depression packed the Americans into thousands of temples and churches in an attempt to find sympathy and compassion.
