dc.description.abstractThis study explores differences and similarities in the Southern Baptist and Pentecostal discourse on Islam through a qualitative analysis of the two evangelical news outlets Charisma and the Baptist Press. The first chapter analyzes their discourses on the notion of Sharia law in America, while the second chapter focuses on their coverage of President Trump’s immigration order. Several differences and similarities are found. Most notably, both Charisma and the Baptist Press promote a fearful attitude toward the concept of Sharia law that is based on a misunderstanding of the concept. Both promote the notion that Sharia law is a threat to the American culture and legal system. However, their contrasts are sharper in their coverage of President Trump’s statements during his presidential campaign and the subsequent immigration order. In this chapter, Charisma amplifies their fearful discourse from the previous chapter. Strong ties to the Christian Right and a conflation of Islamophobia and the political Left is revealed. Conversely, the Baptist tradition of defending religious liberty and the separation of church and state, in addition to differing views on the balance of compassion and national security in terms of Muslim immigration, leads to a discourse on the immigration order that is characterized less by fear and more by disagreement.eng
