R&P – Imagining a “Judeo-Christian” Nation

Imagining Judeo-Christian America is not only about the history of the idea of “Judeo-Christianity.” It is a story of how “Americans have imagined their national project” and why so many concluded “that the United States is a Judeo-Christian country.” According to Gaston, in its modern usage “Judeo-Christianity” is essentially a theory of democracy, whose proponents argue that the United States is interconnected with religious values, beliefs, and practices. The term came into usage in the 1930s to anchor democratic society against the threat of “totalitarianism,” and it became popularized during WWII and made its way into presidential politics during Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first term in office in the 1950s.”
