Charles Taylor on the nature of ideological negotiation of the modern secular state


‎"The state can be neither Christian nor Muslim nor Jewish; but by the same token it should also be neither Marxist, nor Kantian, nor Utilitarian. [...] This is not easy to do; the lines are hard to draw; and they must always be drawn anew. But such is the nature of the enterprise which is the modern secular state."
(Charles Taylor, Secularism and critique)
