Those who attend very large congregations do not tend to attribute social divisions between blacks and whites to discrimination, but to something other than structural failings in society. Kevin Dougherty, Ph.D., and Jerry Z. Park, Ph.D., both associate professors of sociology in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, co-authored "Congregational Size and Attitudes toward Racial Inequality among Church Attendees in America," published in the journal Religions.
