Bill of Rights in Action
Fall 2004 (20:4)

Religion and Society

This edition of Bill of Rights in Action examines religious issues. The first article looks at the Great Awakening, a religious movement in colonial America that may have affected the American Revolution. The second article explores historical origins of the split between Muslim Sunnis and Shiites, which still divides Muslims today. The last article examines the controversy over whether the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance violates the First Amendment’s establishment clause.

U.S. History: Jonathan Edwards and the Great Awakening in Colonial America

World History: Islam Divided: The Shiites and Sunnis

Current Issues: Should We Take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?
