There is a powerful elite in this country and world that do not like Christians. They justify their thoughts and actions towards Christians by thinking of them as ignorant, wrong and just being led around by the nose by Christian leaders. It has been called a subculture that although isn’t huge it is quite powerful and influencial. A new book is out that covers Christianophobia in great detail.
Sociologists: ‘Christianophobia,’ Anti-Christian Hostility Infects Powerful Elite Subculture (Interview)
By Napp Nazworth/The Christian Post
A small, but elite group of Americans demonstrate signs of anti-Christian hostility, sociologists David Williamson and George Yancey claim in their new book, So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is There Christianophobia in the United States?
In an email interview with The Christian Post, Yancey, professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, explained that Christians are fortunate in one sense, because those with anti-Christian hostility are small in number; but in another sense, they should be concerned, because those with “Christianophobia” tend to be powerful elites with influence in certain important areas, such as higher education.
The data for their research comes from a large national survey, the American National Election Survey, and interviews they conducted with members of liberal advocacy organizations.
The title of the book is a reference to how some Christians were put to death during the Roman Empire, and the phrase can be found on bumper stickers. Several of the interviewees used some variant of the “so few lions” theme when describing their attitudes toward Christians.
Yancey added that he and Williamson, associate professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, hope their book will make those who are hostile toward Christians more aware of their own biases so that they can correct them.
Here is a transcript of that interview:
