Politics of Religious Freedom

Webb Keane

University of Chicago Press

This essay contrasts religion as belief with religion as morality. The former understands religion as propositional, while the latter is a matter of divinely sanctioned sensibilities. Keane emphasizes that proponents of religion and irreligion alike are concerned with how individuals make decisions about questions of meaning and value.
