Religion and Conflict in the USA (Speaker: Charles Davidson)

Charles E. Davidson, Ph.D.

Religious conflict in the United States is partially the result of the perceived loss of the “culture wars” by the religious right. Rooted in the fundamentalist/modernist split, this conflict is especially catalyzed by the perceived necessity of the religious right to preserve their identity. What has transpired is a new blend of religion and politics that is reshaping the identities of both conservative politics and the religious/evangelical right.
