Is political secularism a neutral position?
prisonchaplain posted a topic in General DiscussionPolitical secularism, by which I think of groups like the Freedom from Religion Foundation, has billed itself as neutral position, as a defender of the U.S. Constitution's prohibition against government establishing religion. Many school districts, and a fair number of government agencies seem to accept secularism's inherent neutrality as fact. Is it? One Catholic writer, from Crux, argues that: A rabbi in my area, Daniel Lapin, has labeled such groups as "secular fundamentalists." I like that because it distinguishes agnostic/atheists of good will and open-mindedness (who might very well self-identify as 'secular') from those who insist that all religion must be driven out of the public square, and that believers are foolish, at best. THOUGHTS?
