The September 2023 issue of Harper's carries a letter from Kathryn Lofton, identified as a professor of religious studies and American studies at Yale (she's also dean of humanities in Yale's faculty of arts and sciences). She writes:
Many religious communities around the world include an injunction to acknowledge wrongdoing through expiation. Within Protestant sects, confession is a ritual that occurs in some but not all churches, and not always for the same reasons. Christianity is a term that summarizes thousands of different sectarian movements unified by little other than interest in the Jesus story.

Among the signs of a religious resurgence on American college campuses, a letter to the editor from a Yale dean decrying prejudice against religious people isn't one that I had on my list of expected developments. I think the author of God and Man at Yale would be pleased to see it.
