Why and How Secular Society Should Accommodate Religion. A Philosophical Proposal
2010 0-7734-3811-4
This study examines judiciary attempts to refine the neutrality worldview called for by the U.S. Constitution.

Abstract: The author argues that religion should be reasonably accommodated in the public arena, especially in the United States. To this end he reviews and critiques the way this issue has been considered in both philosophical and legal circles. He finds that neither the philosophical nor the legal case for suppressing religion-based statements in the public arena is persuasive or definitive.
