Paper Topic: The Political Implications of Religious Switching

The purpose of this paper is to have students respond to religious switching among Americans, specifically the use of examples from Amazing Grace and any other assigned readings. Questions include: ‘What are the political implications of the relatively high rate of religious switching among Americans?, ‘In answering this question, you will want to consider the possible effects on America’s religions or the possible effects on the nation’s political system–or both.’ and Whatever the effect(s) you discuss, consider also the following question: Is this healthy for American democracy? Why or why not?’
