Abstract

The unchallenged premise in all legal arguments regarding Islam is that Islam is a "religion" as that term is used in the jurisprudence of the United States. This monograph takes a critical look at that premise and, upon well cited legal, religious and historical authorities, concludes that such a premise enjoys no such place in the law of the United States. Though completely politically-incorrect, the conclusions reached in "Is Islam a Religion" cannot be avoided if full faith and allegiance to our secular constitutionalism is to be continued in the 21st Century.

Keywords: Constitutional Law, Islam, Establishment Clause
