1. Introduction The appropriate role of religion in a liberal democracy has in recent years been the topic of growing debate among social and political philosophers, legal scholars, and the public generally. Although there is general agreement that the liberal ideal of individual freedom, in particular freedom of religion, justifies some degree of separation of church and state, there is no consensus about what exactly the relationship between religion and government should be. This debate has expressed itself in a variety of public controversies, such as Michael Newdow's ongoing efforts to have "under God" legally removed from the U.S. pledge of allegiance; France's 2004 passage of a law banning the wearing of religious symbols, notably Muslim headscarves, in public schools; or even the 2005 decision by a U.S. federal court judge ordering public schools in Cobb County, Georgia, to remove from their science textbooks stickers that read: "evolution is a theory, not a fact, concerning the origin of living things."
