Meeting 1/27: Religion’s Role in America

27 Jan

Religion has always, to some extent, played a role in America society. While there is a “separation of church and state,” religion and religious views have always influenced politics, people, media, and culture. Different groups, specifically the religious right and secular left, are claiming that America is growing more religious or more atheist. These groups, in response to these perceived threats to their beliefs and values, are advocating harder and more fiercely their beliefs and calling for politicians and people push policies through Congress that will help to create the “America” they want to live in. But what kind of America is that? Should religious/atheist factions be allowed to dictate what policies or laws everyone must live by? Is America under threat of becoming too religious or too secular? Is that even an issue if it’s true?
