Georgetown/On Faith: Pew\’s preposterous pop quiz – Jacques Berlinerblau

The media loves the genre of “New Atheist/Fundie Smackdown.” It’s entertaining. It generates page views. It doesn’t require much thought or analysis.

And for these reasons many Americans receive the impression that debates between Dinesh D’Souza and Christopher Hitchens are of great national import.

Mark my words: this is but a (circus) sideshow. The real, hot, ideological action in the United States is taking place within religious traditions, sometimes even within a given house of worship. Those debates are raw and bitter and combustive and complex and their outcomes will shape our society for generations to come.
