“Dear Sir—In your article, you mention the increasingly popular
expression, ‘ceremonial Deism’ (it is a religion and thus, a proper noun).
Deism, or the belief in a creator but not in revealed religion, is one of
the fastest growing belief systems in this country. I hope that Deism is
given more press as many Americans are Deists, and not Christians. As
president of the United Deist Church, I’m honored to have so many people
express satisfaction at finally being able to identify what they believe in.
This is not mere ceremonial Deism. It is an organized group of people and
emerging churches where Deists may finally come together in community and
experience God without dogma.
