On February 16, at a meeting in Wittenberg, Germany, Professor Grace Davie (University of Exeter, Britain) said to leaders of Europe’s main Christian traditions: “The presence of Islam …has reopened issues that Europeans thought were closed.”
What was she talking about?
Here was what she said: “You cannot privatise Islam. We have seen that.” Why is her concern about “privatization” of Islam of such concern to her? Why does she bring it up with other Christian leaders? Why is it important to all of us, believers or not?
It is important because the “privatization” of spiritual choice is a fundamental characteristic of Western civilization, and understanding why that is so is essential to our survival.
Hvordan kan vi nogensinde leve med islam. Artiklen siger, det kan vi kun, ved at få muslimerne til adskille det religiøse og det politiske i islam. Den kommer med henvisninger til hvordan.
