    Fundamentalism is rooted in American Protestantism where conflicts arose because of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century movement known as the Modernist Controversy. It concerned the leaning of some Christians toward intellectual developments such as evolutionary biology, which challenged the Bible’s account of creation.

    The United States of America has the most diverse religious population in the world. In places like Iraq, Syria, Israel, Afghanistan, Yemen, and other countries too numerous to mention, countless lives are lost over religious differences. In America, a Protestant can live happily next door to a Jew, who might live across the street from a Muslim, or a Catholic, or a Sikh, or even a Humanist! This is in no small way attributed to the fact that the US Constitution’s First Amendment includes what is

    of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglas. Douglas bestows the idea that the Christianity of his age is entirely antithetical to its intended form. It is an era of Christianity defined by slave ownership, corruption, and the paucity of women 's rights.

Frederick Douglas contends that “The Christianity of Christ” and

    Uncle Tom's Cabin: Stowe's Paradoxical Christian Message Perhaps the greatest criticism levied against Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin is that it comprises of nothing more than Victorian sentimentality, and that the death of its two moral exemplars, Tom and Little Eva, do little which actually remedies the injustices of slavery. Critic Ann Douglas sees the novel as emblematic of the "feminization of American culture," which in religious terms figures as "a move away from the morally forceful Calvinism

    Palestinian Christians: The Unknown Victims Johnny Yousef George Thaljieh has become known as the "Martyr of the Nativity Church." He was not a suicide bomber or even a stone thrower, just a 17-year-old kid who belonged to the small Palestinian Christian minority that is often forgotten in what is seen as a war between Muslims and Jews. There was a shooting that day in late October 2001, as there often is between Beit Jala and the Jerusalem suburb of Gilo, but none near the Nativity Church. As

    By exploring the Religious Right, its foundation, purposes, and influences can be gleaned. Although it is currently commonly referenced, the Religious Right as a concept can be traced back to the earliest decades of the 20th century.

    For a Christian There is No Freedom To Die "Freedom" is a highly cherished value in our society, not only in all aspects of life, but increasingly in aspects of death as well.
