As American Religion Declines, Identity Politics And Tribalism Rises
Jon Ward is a Senior Political Correspondent at Yahoo News and host of the podcast, “The Long Game.” Ward recently interviewed Andrew Sullivan on his ideas on the decline of American Christianity. On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, Ward and Ben Domenech discuss the political impact of secularization, identity politics, and cultural attitudes toward free speech and race.
“That fundamental Christian belief and value of each human being because they are made in the image God, and that combined with the sense of politics as important but not ultimate…those two things can work together quite well to help us have disagreements that can be fierce but not deadly,” Ward said.
Ward has a new book out next month called, “Camelot’s End: Kennedy vs. Carter and the Fight that Broke the Democratic Party.”
