Description:

This paper discusses stereotyping and discriminatory policies in the US and notes that the five most common religions in America are Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. The paper specifically looks at the two main concerns regarding the issue of church and the state, namely the interpretation of the First Amendment and how Americans respond to this amendment. The paper refers to many court cases dealing with the separation of church and state.

From the Paper:

"Arguably, the most debatable topic is what role the American government should play in the aspects of peoples' lives, from the workplace to the Pledge of Allegiance. In America there are so many religions that almost no one is aware of all of them, the five most popular, and their demographic percentages spread across America. The most popular or common religion in America is obviously Christianity, with its many denominations coming in at about 76.5% of Americans' religious affiliation; and while it is the most common religion, more Christians are found in the Great Plains area then anywhere else. After that, several people would be able to guess the next four most popular religions but they probably would not be able to tell you the order in which they fall."
