Why Politics Needs Religion

The Place of Religious Arguments in the Public Square
  • By Brendan Sweetman
$16.99
($22.00)
Can relligion and politics mix?

As we witness the clash of religious and secular worldviews he claims that our pluralistic democratic society will be best served when the faith elements of secularism are acknowledged and the rational elements of religious arguments are allowed to inform the momentous debates taking place in the public square. In fact, Sweetman contends that "politics needs religion if it is to be truly democratic, concerned with fairness among worldviews, equality and a vigorous public discussion."
