Forcing the First Amendment

American Exporting of Religious Freedom

(p.168) 5 Forcing the First Amendment

Nadia Marzouki

, C. Jon Delogu
Columbia University Press

The fifth chapter looks at how the treatment of Islam as a matter of foreign policy reveals less clear distinctions than those observed in domestic quarrels between moral registers, law, and security. The policy of exporting the principle of international religious freedom is founded mostly on a culturalist approach that opposes an intolerant Muslim world to a persecuted Christian world.
