Religious Convictions and Political Choice

Kent Greenawalt

How far may Americans properly rely on their religious beliefs when they make and defend political decisions? Are religious convictions compatible with liberal democratic premises? Kent Greenawalt dissects such issues as abortion and animal rights to illustrate secular and religious bases for decision making, concluding that citizens cannot be expected to rely exclusively on rational, secular grounds.
