Worldviews and Pluralism

Excellent post on Tom Price's blog:

Worldview Level Questions About Secular Democracy

Hazel Blears said, 'We live in a secular democracy.' But does she live in an 'outside, inside' ? Let me explain. The concept of secular democracy that she has articulated, has on one side, 'real freedom' and on the other 'the closed system' of secularism. We need to ask some questions about this. What do I mean? Secularism is perspective. Democracy, stable and free, neither needs it nor asks for it. Though some think it means 'neutrality in public life' secularism actually means, 'a doctrine that rejects religion and religious considerations.' It is at root from the family of perspectives that see the universe as only matter, it's a naturalistic (atheistic) life and worldview.
