Christian Privilege, History, and Trends in U.S. Religion
Fairchild, Ellen E.
New Directions for Student Services, n125 p5-11 Spr 2009
In her seminal essay on white privilege, McIntosh (1988) began a discussion on privilege that has taken hold in areas outside her original intent. In this chapter, the author discusses privilege as it pertains not only to race and gender but to religion, especially the Christian faith. The author incorporates the current state of religious flux in the United States, and offers some implications for practice as student affairs practitioners work with today's college students.
