Doctrinal or Orthodox Christianity

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by Karen Silver (United States), Nov 26, 2002 at 11:42

I agree with you that there is a basic disconnect between the more liberal Northern Christianity and the more "doctrinal" and "orthodox" Christianity of the South. This is true, not only in the US, but in the world as well. The Anglicanism of Africa is nothing like that of Europe or the Episcopal Church in the US. The Catholicism of the barrio is not the Catholicism of the US, or even the more intensely "Irish" church of the US. Even the Southern Baptists who live up North are less doctrinaire than those in Alabama.

I think the schism, when it occurs, will be more de facto (it already is that) than de jure.
