Today's American exeptionalism is not only related to the myth of the American dream and to the U.S. military and economic superiority, but also to the role of religion in the American domestic and foreign policy. The president, himself, a born again Christian, does not hesitate to use a moralistic and implicitly religious language in order to defend his policies which are very much in keeping with the preferences of evangelical Christians. The number of studies concerned with the fusion of religion and politics in the United States has increased exponentially, as has the number of textbooks, articles and magazines dealing with this topic. However, if religion is a fast expanding and increasingly contemporary subject, today's political situation makes it a dangerous topic to talk about. It is dangerous because almost everything one may say about it is controversial, mainly after the emergence of Islamic fundamentalist networks which use religion as a unifying force to change the world order and mobilize Muslims worldwide. On September 11, 2001 two airplanes crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York and another one into the Pentagon in Washington.
