This paper compares the effects of religion affiliation and religious market structure on public attitudes toward Muslims in four different countries: Germany and the United Kingdom (religiously pluralistic), Sweden (predominately Protestant), and Spain (predominately Catholic). Catholic respondents in Germany and Protestants in Sweden are more likely to accept Muslims as neighbors than are the religiously nonaffiliated. Self-reported Catholicism is not significantly related to attitudes toward Muslims among Spanish respondents.
