Abstract

This thesis explores both the relationship between Christianity and U.S. politics and the influence that relationship has had on policy. The main focus of the research is on minority populations or those adversely affected by Christian-influenced policy. An exploration of historical influence allows for better context of today’s issues regarding Christianity in politics. This research is significant in that it helps better understand how policy can enact significant harm to those who are not in places of privilege. Moving forward, this research aims to raise questions regarding influences on U.S. policy and how, moving forward, this country can begin to separate them.
