David Lose: Is America a Christian Nation?


Superb essay: 

David Lose: Is America a Christian Nation?.

Also included in the discussion would be one’s definition of ‘Christian’ and how that accounts for communal identity and individual identity. It seems interesting to me that Conservative who push individual over almost anything else (and start sputtering ‘heresy’ at any mention of the communal nature of salvation) here push the communal; while liberals (who talk long and hard about the importance of communal aspects to life and faith) suddenly focus on individuals and their privatized beliefs.
