dc.description.abstractHow does attention to controversial social problems rise and fall among Evangelical Protestants and Mainline Protestants over time? Drawing on content analysis from 1960-2013, I find that while attention to racial inequality distinguished these two religious traditions over the 1960s and early-1970s, attention to abortion has distinguished these two traditions since the 1980s. Moreover, I find that maintaining and strengthening religious identity is a key factor in how these controversial social problems are managed over time by religious groups. These findings suggest a close and complex relationship between religious identity and controversial social and political debates.en_US
