‘Armband religion’ is quite simply..wearing it on your sleeve. In other words, living the life of faith, as opposed to keeping your faith to Church on Sunday, where of course all intelligent people contain it. *insert rolling eyes here*

What Parker and secular intellectuals mean is stop embarrassing us with talk about God, faith and family and go back in the closet! It makes us feel uncomfortable around our liberal friends. We won't get invited to the Washington cocktail circuit if we have to keep the Elmer Gantry crowd for company!

Thanks for the tip. Are you sure that’s what Kathleen Parker meant by “armband”?
