ABSTRACT
Opinion. Discusses Stephen Carter's new book, `The Culture of Disbelief,' which argues that the American elite is routinely disdainful of or hostile to religion. Suggestion that the circumstances surrounding the book may outweigh the text itself; How elite culture has marginalized religion; How religious groups are often depicted as out-of-step zealots; How me-first individualism and `choice' are no substitute for moral traditions.
