Democracy and the New Religious Pluralism

This chapter attempts to show that the Christian response to the challenge of the new religious pluralism has everything to do with Christian nonviolence. It argues that pluralism is the ideology used by Protestant liberals to give themselves the illusion they are still in control of, or at least have responsibility for, the future of America. Religion is the designation created to privatize strong convictions in order to render them harmless so that alleged democracies can continue to have the illusion they flourish on difference. If there is anything new about the current situation, it is that we are coming to the end of Protestant hegemony in America.

Keywords:   religion, Christian nonviolence, interfaith dialogue, Protestant hegemony, Constantine
