American Civil Religion

Earlier in the week, I discussed civil religion in America in a post entitled, “The Role of Faith in American Politics.” Read some of the fabulous comments that go along with it, especially from my very knowledgeable friend, mk. Well, I was watching the Colbert Report, and lo and behold, an example of American civil religion popped up right before the audience’s eyes. And because it was on the Colbert Report, you know I wasn’t making all of this up. It starts around the 2:15 mark and lasts until the 3:40ish mark. But it’s all worth watching if you have the time.
