Religion and public office

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/?podcastItem=religion.mp3

Professor Roger Trigg talks about the relationship between faith, religion and public office. Should we make a clear distintion between public office and private belief?

Summary:

Should faith be privatised
Why do we struggle to discuss this
Does removing faith leave a moral or ethical vacuum
Can we reconcile tradition and pluralism in society
Does the status of the Church of England weaken the status of other religions
Should we have a register of philosophical interests
Should faith be more vocal on key issues
Does not listening to religious opinion force people into extremism
Do we have a fear of theocratic states
Is this a case of absolutism vs relativism
Is our democracy founded on the authority of God or the People
Can we have a separation between public service and private faith
