Should religion be allowed in the public spaces?
Most religions are not liberal or democratic so they should not be granted special status in a liberal democratic system
There are numerous
of non-democratic regimes supported by monotheistic communities around the world.
Links between religions and anti-democratic regimes have prompted the
that all religions inculcate intolerance toward alternative views of the world and instills in their followers norms of obedience and deference to authority that are incompatible with democracy and individual liberty.
Allowing religion in the public space, is allowing their conservative ideologies to extend beyond the public sphere.
Many religions promote equality among all people which is a basis for any liberal democratic system.
