Sociologists: 'Christianophobia,' Anti-Christian Hostility Infects Powerful Elite Subculture
A small, but elite group of Americans demonstrate signs of anti-Christian hostility, sociologists David Williamson and George Yancey claim in their new book, So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is There Christianophobia in the United States? In an email interview with The Christian Post, Yancey, professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, explained that Christians are fortunate in one sense, because those with anti-Christian hostility are small in number; but in another sense, they should be concerned, because those with "Christianophobia" tend to be powerful elites with influence in certain important areas, such as higher education. The data for their research comes from a large national survey, the American National Election Survey, and interviews they conducted with members of liberal advocacy organizations.
NASA employees suing over religious rights
At the Johnson Space Center, members of the NASA JSC Praise and Worship Club believe there’s a problem. The space center allegedly banned the group from using the name Jesus as part of an announcement for an upcoming Christian prayer and song gathering in an online company newsletter. “It shocked us and it hurt because we never expected that,” said Sophia Smith. “Apparently somebody made a complaint. And then legal calls us up and says, ‘From here on out, you cannot have the name Jesus in our announcement.’” Smith said the group has been around for nearly 15 years and has made similar announcements in the past. The group’s attorney is threatening to sue NASA for violating its members’ religious freedoms.
