It was once said that as societies develop, religion disappears. This myth has now been debunked, as the persistence of modern religious belief attests; however, it remains unresolved how religion should enter into our secular spaces of public discourse within the media, civil society and government. In a country that has defined itself by values of pluralism and religious freedom, the exclusion of religion from all public discourse would be simplistic and inconsistent with our heritage.
