Affirming the Boundary between Religion and the Media
This chapter examines the experiences of Traditionalist American teenagers and their parents in order to determine how the separation from the media influences teen interpretations of the supernatural. It explores the question of whether teenagers who expressed a serious level of religious commitment are interested in supernatural beings, power, or practices. It also analyzes the tendency of the traditionalist teenagers to be guided by an overarching concern with personal morality that framed their understanding of the media and of religion.
