Liberalism: A Challenge to Religion

Should the state remain neutral on the question of values, or should it impose an idea of right and wrong on its citizens?


A liberal state will put ideas about rights and individual autonomy at the centre of the relationship between the individual and the state. However, it is sometimes argued that the liberal state should be neutral, not seeking to impose an overall conception of the good on society. Should individuals choose their own values, with the state providing a framework within which individuals can pursue their own conception of the good without interference from others?
