Racialized Churches: How Race Changes the Impact of Church Congregations

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The impact of membership in church congregations upon political attitudes has been well-studied, yielding interesting results which suggest the particular significance of these associations. However, the impact of the composition of these congregations is largely neglected – we do not know how the demographic characteristics of churches impact their associational effects. This paper intends to remedy that absence by analyzing the data from the Collaborative Multi-Racial Post-Election Survey, which asks respondents both about their political attitudes and the racial composition of their church. Further, it asks respondents, independently of denomination, to characterize their congregations as evangelical or charismatic, allowing for a more nuanced investigation of the impact of congregational characteristics. The survey, conducted in late 2008, interviewed 4,563 respondents and contains oversamples of racial minorities. This paper will employ ordered logit models to analyze the determinants of attitudes on hot-button issues such as abortion, immigration, and health care reform. Preliminary analyses suggest that congregational composition possesses a strong, significant, and independent effect upon political attitudes.
