(p.25) Chapter Two The Arguments for Silence
The Outrageous Idea of Christian Scholarship

George M. Marsden

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of why the “science versus religion” stereotype is so deeply etched in the minds of many academics. It then turns to how religious expressions are susceptible to restrictions in the name of multiculturalism. This is particularly true in classrooms where religious expression has widely been discouraged for most of this century. The chapter also considers how religious expression suffered from the old liberalism that dominated most of 20th-century intellectual life, one of which is the rise of the dogma of “separation of church and state”.

Keywords:   Christian faith, science, religious expression, multiculturalism, liberalism, separation of church and state
