The Islamic Challenge

Oxford University Press

Islam has quickly become part of the accommodating religious landscape in the United States, and Muslims were added to the already existing ‘rainbow coalition’ of religions. In Europe, religious pluralism is a new social fact that has yet to be fitted into legal frameworks and public practices. Indeed, institutions established long before the arrival of significant Islamic minorities have found it difficult to respond to the needs of Muslims who have decided that they need to build their own religious institutions and are no longer content to rely on pastoral services from the old country. A painful reconsideration of the role of religion in public policy has begun in Europe, but so far, with contradictory results because of the several complications which are discussed in this chapter.

Keywords:   Islam, Muslims, rainbow coalition, religious pluralism, minorities, pastoral services, religion, Europe
