Chuck Colson quotes Russell Kirk in God & Government.  Kirk claims:

Although church and state stand separate, the political order cannot be renewed without theological virtues working upon it… It is from the church that we receive our fundamental postulates of order, justice and freedom, applying them to our civil society.

Nothing exists in a vacuum, you replace one set of values another is bound to take its place.  When individual’s values replaces a common shared set of values (which we have seen in our society) we either see chaos or despotism.
