THE PROBLEM OF MULTICULTURALISM Radicalism Mainstreaming through Religious Preaching in Surakarta
AbstractAbstract: This study aims at identifying the material scope of religious preaching and sermon; and describing the multicultural aspects conveyed in the religious preaching and sermon. Using content and discourse analysis, this study found that: the diversity of the society got little attention by different religious preachers; instead of multicultural values, the religious preaches and sermons contained some anti-multicultural values, such as self-righteousness, prejudices and stereotypes of other groups; the subject of religious preaches and sermons implied the intensity of the purification movement; and the development of Islam implied the tendency of religious radicalism as reflected in the hostility towards the local culture, foreign people, and non-Moslems. Keywords: Multiculturalism, Islam, Religious preaching, Radicalism, Salafist.
