    Abstract:
    There must be be renewed efforts to increase respect by all political, religious, and social institutions for the modern view that political society’s primary interests are in fostering peace, justice, freedom and equality, not in advancing religion. This is the basic meaning of the separation of church and state. The obvious tension here, of course, is that historically, religion has been the basis for every dimension of life, including the political. In the final analysis, we, as members of the human community, owe it to ourselves and to our progeny to make religious liberty a reality of everyone. There is no more important project as we enter the twenty–first century. (Derek Davis, "Thoughts on Religious Persecution Around the Globe" in Journal of Church and State (1998) Volume 40, 2.
