Charlers Taylor om sekularism

“We think that secularism (or laïcité) has to do with the relation of the state and religion; whereas in fact it has to do with the (correct) response of the democratic state to diversity." An argument justified by reference to Marx or Kant, he suggested, is no more universal than one justified by reference to scripture.
