the evangelical outpost

"Several months ago I argued that the fight over the phrase "under God" in the Pledge was a dispute over the liturgy of our country's civil religion, not of Christianity. The theme was picked up and fleshed out by John Coleman, one of the brightest young Christian minds in America. Though he initially disagreed with my position, he has since reconsidered and published his thoughts in an op-ed for the Birmingham (Alabama) News"

Interesting piece that describes the notion of American Civil Religion and the confusion many Christians attach to it.
