Readers Respond: Undermining Support for Theocracy in America

Be the first to respond


Only a minority of Americans support amending the U.S. Constitution to make Christianity America's official religion, but it's a disturbingly large majority: 32%. Even more worrisome is the large majority of evangelical Christians who support this: 66%. That's far too many Americans who support transforming America into a theocracy.

What, if anything, can be done about this? Is there anything which secularists and supporters of church/state separation can do to reduce support for theocracy — both the support in the overall American public and support among evangelical Christians? What tactics would you recommend?
