Prothero on Religion & Politics


Stephen Prothero is one of America’s leading scholars on the relationship between religion and politics. I have long agreed with him that Americans suffer from a religious illiteracy – and other forms of cultural illiteracy, of the kind that invites ideologues to prosper. There is a moral obligation to be intelligent, and this requires anyone really interested in American history to be religiously literate or else they will greatly misunderstand the American story.

Note to Readers


Most mornings, I post my big blog by 9 a.m. and then post links to other good articles throughout the morning. This morning, however, I have a wave of commitments so I have posted everything - a commentary on nativism and two links - already. Be sure to check back at NCRToday for commentary throughout the day on important issues and breaking news.
