Om burkan och liberalismen ...

"Respect for difference, of course! But on condition that the different be parliamentary-democratic, pro free-market economies, in favor of freedom of opinion, feminism, the environment ... That is to say: I respect differences, but only, of course, in so far as that which differs also respect, just as I do, the said differences."

Alain Badiou, Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil. London: Verso, 2001. s.24

Can liberal democracy have a place for people who claim to know or embody 'the truth'? If it cannot, what could it possibly mean by diversity?

D. Stephen Long. Speaking of God: Theology, Language, and Truth. Grand Rapids Eerdmans, 2009. s.271
