Is America a Christian Nation?
post date: January 13, 2009Christianity is no longer Americans’ default faith. For a long time most people assumed that being born in America meant that you were raised with a Christian background. That is, even if you didn’t go to church, you were raised in and around the Christian faith. That was your background, your frame of reference, your “default faith.” But things have changed. On one hand, America has grown increasingly secularized in the last 50 years. And as the world has come to the U.S., people from other countries have brought their religions with them. The result is a confusing sort of “spiritual soup” with Christianity no longer being taken for granted as the faith of most Americans. That’s the topic for disucssion during the 11 AM-12 Noon (Central Time) broadcast on American Family Radio. We’re hoping to have Georga Barna on live to discuss the implications of his latest research. To listen to the broadcast, go to American Family Radio and then click on"AFR-Talk” in the right-hand column.
