Contrasting irreligious orientation: atheism and secularity in the USA and Scandinavia
Keywords:Atheism, Secularism, Irreligion, United States, Scandinavia, Apostasy, Religious change, Agnosticism
AbstractAtheism and secularity are not static, fixed orientations. Rather, atheism and secularity are contoured, malleable, and deeply shaped by cultural and social forces. A clear example of the degree to which atheism and secularity can be lived and expressed quite differently in different socio-cultural locations is revealed by comparing and contrasting the ways in which they are manifested in the United States and Scandinavia.
