Southern Religion

Still a faith-based nation

Faith-Based Organizations, as a result of Bush regulatory changes, now successfully “retain their religious identity while providing publicly funded services.”

Reviewing Faith-Based and Community Initiatives in well-stated detail, Winnifred Fallers Sullivan concludes:

Understanding Americans to be fundamentally religious is now deeply embedded in government and in our public culture. That is the default position. Not secularism. Chaplaincies are proliferating across the U.S. to serve Americans in the military, in hospitals, in colleges, in the workplace—and in crisis situations. While President Obama is careful to speak always with respect for people who are not religious, all the evidence suggests that we are still a faith-based nation.
