In the 1980s Jose Casanova wrote a book called Public Religions in the Modern World. He noticed that, although religion was seen a private matter for some time, it was now becoming more de-privatized, which he believes was strongly compelled by the rise of the Moral Majority.

Casanova's theory contends that the privatization and the de-privatization of religion appeared to be happening simultaneously.
