With a range of blogs and websites dedicated to religion flourishing online right now, Sacred Matters has a unique place among its peer publications. It is designed with the “nones” in mind, the fastest growing segment of the American religious landscape over the last ten years. These are individuals who prefer not to claim a specific, singular religious identity on surveys, who are unaffiliated, and who are mostly young Americans. But while they claim no religious affiliation, they are still not completely removed from the sacred. Sacred Matters features articles and commentaries that bring the sacred beings and things of society often excluded from conversations about religion and spirituality to the fore. The scope of topics is expansive but culture-bound, so everything from science to popular culture; theology to sexuality; health and healing to the Internet."
