the secular society vs. the post-secular society

This 2006 video of Barack Obama’s speech (video below) is interested to read in juxtaposition to Jürgen Habermas’s recent essay on sightandsound, Notes on a Post-Secular Society.

If you are interested in a response to this video from Focus on the Family, their show Turn Signal has a 3-part interview with Tom Minnery (part 1, part 2, part 3).

This would all be interesting to put together with Sharon Crowley’s Toward a Civil Discourse: Rhetoric and Fundamentalism, if I had read it yet.
