Is America Too Damn Religious?
Oxford-style debate comes to America. Yay! And this one you can listen to online, with luminaries such as Alan Wolfe, Bill Galston, Barry Lynn, Susan Jacoby and Jean Bethke Elshtain who gets tghe money quote:
"One should not, from any direction, separate America's citizens who accept a secular world from those, the religious, who alleged do not. Citizens of religious commitment are among the most enthusiastic supporters of a secular government. They don't want established religion, but they also understand that to support a secular government and state does not commit us to a thoroughly secularized society, shorn of religious voices, symbols, activities and commitments. We would be a greatly impoverished country were this to come to pass. So too damned religious? Nope. Just pretty damned American...."
