A Post-Evangelical America

Leave a comment

If this week’s exit polls tell us anything about religion, they remind us that there are tens of millions of voters in this country who believe in God, read their Scripture, pray, regularly attend a house of worship—and do not consider themselves born-again Christians. In 2008, 44 percent of Americans who go to religious services more than once a week voted for Obama; in 2004, just 35 percent of those people voted for Kerry—a nine-point increase and the most surprising number in all the religious polling. “It’s very cool,” says Jim Wallis, founder of the left-leaning evangelical group Sojourners, “that the story is not white evangelicals again.”
