Religiosidad, Democracia, Laicismo— (2009)
In the discussion on religion-democracy-secularism, several Catholic authors make some mistakes. Firstly, they accept a historical «mea culpa» that is not always well founded, and they accept to discuss on State’s terms. They also indulge in «Eurocentrism», and undervalue certain factors in the conflict: the State’s «vocation of Church», Sovereignty, the displacement of politics towards what is personal and the loss of public validity of three important visions: the specific nature of politics, the basic agreement, and the general legal mass of rules and fundamental principles.
