Living The Secular Life: New Answers To Old Questions

Dec 22, 2014

12/22/14 - Monday's Topical Currents: Millions of Americans who aren’t religious feel a bit excluded from many friends and relatives during the holiday season.   Professor of sociology and secular studies Phil Zuckerman has researched those whose religious beliefs have waned . . . And written the book, Living The Secular Life:  New Answers To Old Questions. In the 1950s, fewer than 5% of Americans were nonreligious.  Now, that figure has risen to 30%.  Do these individuals miss out on moral direction, social bonds and effective navigation of modern life? Zuckerman says a life of secularism actually promotes morality and human decency. Monday at 1pm on Topical Currents.
