A U.S. Citizenship Quiz for Easter

uscitizenpod: A U.S. Citizenship Quiz for Easter 

The 2018 quiz pairs ten citizenship questions with ten American Christians from the western Catholic and Protestant traditions:

  • Bartolomé de las Casas
  • Sojourner Truth
  • Aimee Semple McPherson
  • Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin
  • Bishop Fulton Sheen
  • Mother Angelica
  • Billy Graham
  • Huston Smith
  • Watchman Nee

This quiz is a follow up to last year's quiz about American Christians from the Eastern Orthodox traditions.

Later, dig deeper into the lives of these saints. For example, Bartolome de las Casas was once a slave owner himself, but changed. His failed mission in Puerto Rico compelled him to take holy orders as a Dominican friar. This change eventually led to his new job as the Bishop of Chiapas, Mexico where used his power to fight for civil rights. Reading his works today, it would be easy to imagine what he would say about the Black Lives Matter movement, Puerto Rico's economic woes, or the incresed militarization of U.S.-Mexico border.
