Otvoreni britanski ateist Richard Dawkins u nekoliko intervjua naziva sebe "kulturalnim kršćaninom".[1][2]

Kulturalni kršćani su nereligiozne osobe (deisti, panteisti, agnostici, ateisti i sl.) koje poštuju kršćansku kulturu i tradiciju. Ova vrsta identifikacije može biti posljedica različitih činitelja, kao što su obiteljska pozadina, lična iskustva, društveno i kulturno okruženje u kojem su odrastali.[3]

Suprotni izrazi su "biblijski kršćanin"[4], "aktivni, prakticirajući kršćanin"[5] ili "vjerujući kršćanin"[6].

Rano moderno doba[uredi VE | uredi]

Deisti iz 18. i početka 19. stoljeća, poput Napoleona i raznih očeva osnivatelja Sjedinjenih Američkih Država, smatraju se dijelom kršćanske kulture, uprkos njihovoj sumnji u božansku prirodu Isusa.[7][8][9][10][11]

Moderna Europa[uredi VE | uredi]

U 21. stoljeću, otvoreni britanski ateist Richard Dawkins u nekoliko intervjua naziva sebe "kulturalnim kršćaninom" i "kulturalnim anglikancem".[12][13][14][15]
