God(s) in the House: from faith to hopeful citizenship
In fact, everyone brings their faith to the public square, as well as to other areas of life: work, school, family, the media and so on. If religion is understood as one’s ultimate commitment, then it cannot be confined to private life, or particular rituals or institutions. Such ultimate commitments are not restricted to formally recognized religions; liberalism, humanism and capitalism are also religious value systems. People place their ultimate commitment in the forces of the market, or the state, or human rights, or the scientific method.
