            The authors of the article “The Religion Gap” used this particular paper to support their argument that the matter at hand pertains to the existence of a religion gap in the voting behavior of Americans. For instance, Olson and Green (2006) point out that individuals who are deemed as conservatives are likely to be affiliated with the Republican party.

            Olson and Green (2006) used this source as a point of reference in an attempt to explain how the widespread societal changes resulted in the emergence of two dominant kinds of religious orientations in America in the post-World War II era. The first one is a politically and theoretically conservative religious outlook while the second one is the emergence of an increasingly liberal and relativist approach to politics and theology. The author of this specific article demonstrates that this dichotomy tends to appear within most families across the United States.

            Olson and Green (2006) quoted this particular article in order to explain that there have been increased noteworthy changes mainly in the voting behaviors of Americans based on the two religious traditions: Evangelicals and Pentecostals. For example, Evangelicals seem to have undergone a systematic political realignment asfrom the 1980s, hence becoming one of the loyal constituencies of the Republican Party.

They stated that the most religious individuals who attend church on a regular basis are likely to vote in the Republicans while less religious ones are highly likely to vote in Democratic candidates.The article by Eastland criticizes this point of view by elaborating on the position that whether Republicans or Democrats, Americans tend to be affiliated their religious beliefs of choice.
