This material examines the different ways that the affiliated and unaffiliated talk about, define, and measure morality. Analysis and discussion centers on the ways that the actively religious, marginally religious, and the five subtypes of religious nones view a wide range of social and political issues, including abortion, same-sex marriage, women in the workforce, environmental laws and spending, government aid to the disadvantaged, and immigration. This chapter builds on the regional analysis throughout the book, demonstrating where and why some pockets of the population—affiliated and unaffiliated—seem to be more liberal or conservative on different social and political issues.

Keywords:   abortion, environmental laws, government aid, immigration, morality, religious nones, political issues, regional analysis, same-sex marriage, women in the workforce
