RELIGIOUS PLURALISM IN AN AGE OF RELIGIOUS NATIONALISM Findings for a Pluralist World On October 9, , the Aspen Institute Inclusive America Project, with generous support from the Democracy Fund and the Templeton Religion Trust, hosted a symposium entitled Conscience.

Religious pluralism and its precursor(s) were doomed to fail, and, in fact, opened the door to a whole-scale mess for Western civilization. While many aspects of the mess could be pointed out, I will restrict myself to one aspect in particular. Religious pluralism led to a gradual weakening of the power and influence of religion in society.   A lot changed between , when Al Smith faced down the taunts and jeers of anti-Catholic Klan activists, and , when John F.

Central to the book is the complex set of relationships between traditional religion and the forces of change.
