However, our understanding of these implications has been hindered by oversimplified concepts and measures that equate secularism with non-religion. We separate the two concepts, distinguishing “non-religiosity,” or the absence of religion, from “secularism,” or a positive embrace of secular beliefs and identities. Using original national-sample cross-sectional and panel surveys, we introduce new measures of secularism, evaluate their properties, and assess their connection to political attitudes and behavior. We find a clear distinction between secularism and non-religiosity in the American public and show that secularism is more closely related than non-religiosity to political attitudes, identifications, and engagement. In fact, while secularism is related to changes over time in political orientations, non-religiosity is not.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Campbell, David E.</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Secularism and American Political Behavior</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Sumaktoyo, Nathanael Gratias</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Green, John C.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Green, John C.</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
