people in America who mistook them for Muslims, as Sikh men wear turbans and have “Middle Eastern” looks. In August 2012, seven people were shot and killed at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, because the killer mistook them for Muslims. At the same time, adherents like Sheena Khandari are having to rethink their outward expressions of faith.

Examine the five Ks of Sikhism. These are the ultimate expressions of faith in Sikhism.

  • Which of the five Ks intrigues you the most? Why?
  • Sheena says it is not the outward expression of religion that matters; instead, it is what is inside that counts. Is this a cop-out or the sign of a genuine struggle to retain her faith in light of today’s realities?
  • Should Americans accept Sikh customs (for example, Sikh policemen being allowed to wear turbans instead of helmets or hats) or should Sikhs adopt American customs?

The writer of the biblical book of Ecclesiastes says, “There is nothing new under the sun.” Many believe that, for the most part, new religious movements (NRMs) are just rehashes of old religions.

Main discussion questions for the week:

Given the religions we have covered this quarter and the definitions and functions of religion in Chapter 1, answer all of the following:

  • Are NRMs just rehashes of old religions or are they old religions with a new twist? Provide an example and explain.
  • Or are NRMs legitimate religions that, according to Chapter 1, fulfill spiritual needs for a new generation and new times? What are these needs? What changes in our world are they reacting to?
  • Finally, in your informed opinion, have the old religions let us down? Are they obsolete?
  • As humankind evolves, are they becoming foundations for more “religious houses”?
