New Claimants to Religious Tolerance and Protection: A Case Study of American and Canadian Muslims

In The Myth of the Judeo-Christian Tradition, Arthur A. Cohen questions the notion that a ‘‘Judeo-Christian’’ tradition even exists, and suggests that it is an invention of twentieth century American politics spawned by efforts to form a cultural consensus and, in the process, homogenize religious identification and promote interfaith harmony. The conception of such a tradition is, in Cohen’s words, “. . . mythological or, rather, not precisely mythological but ideological and hence, as in all ideologies, shot through with falsification, distortion, and untruth.’
