"The functional character of contemporary religious convictions is perhaps nowhere better revealed than in the upsurge of religious conservativism… Christianity is defended not so much because it is true, but because it reinforces the “American way of life.” Such movements are thus unable to contemplate that there might be irresolvable tensions between being Christian and being “a good American”"
