France's "Incomplete Citizens" and Why Some Put Islam First -- Sightings (Myriam Renaud)
We're hearing a lot about the Islamization of Europe, especially France. There is concern in an increasingly secularized Europe that the religious identity of Muslims overshadows their loyalty to nation. At the same time, for many Muslims, there is significant discrimination against them due to religion -- in part perhaps because of more overt displays of religion. Having written a book titled Ultimate Allegiance, in which I suggest that the Lord's Prayer is the Christian pledge of allegiance to God, I would affirm the prior allegiance to God over nation. Myriam Renaud offers us a look at the challenges facing Muslims in France and why they are finding their identity in religion. I invite you to read and offer your thoughts.
