This paper explains that the television show "Sex and the City" demonstrates secularization in which individuals look upon the world and daily events without any benefit of religious interpretations. The author points out that another theme is popular religion such as Charlotte's conversion to Judaism. The paper concludes that what makes the series religious is that it tries not to be religious, which is what much of society is practicing these days.
From the Paper:"The main character named Carrie was the character that the show focused mostly on. Her persona is sassy, fun, sexual and smart. She seemed to have morals and always spoke her mind about everything, which is why the writer's made her occupation as a sex column writer. Carrie carried her own opinions and beliefs. She believes in marriage but not necessarily one that lasts forever. She believes sex should be between two people but not necessarily two people who love each other. She believes in freedom of expression and thinks homosexuality is natural. Her beliefs are similar to many people's beliefs and perhaps some religious constitution beliefs."
