Religious Pluralism in America: Can It Be Supported From Scripture?

Pluralism. It is as American as apple pie isn't it? "Of course," many in the church and out of the church would answer. By pluralism we mean that America is made up of plural (many) faiths; even people with no faith. All religious views should be equally protected by the civil government. After all, it is part of American religious freedom. In recent days we have seen more discussion of religious pluralism. People have worried as to what Pat Robertson, an ordained minister; might do if he were elected President. With his withdrawal that question is mute. Yet the question of whether or not America should be a pluralistic society is alive and well and continues to be discussed.
