Political Liberalism, Religion, Prophetic Tradition

In this report we will discuss about topics like Prophetic Tradition,┬áPolitical Liberalism, Religion, Isolationists, Fundamentalists, etc.┬áLately literature has been created with a negative opinion of the function of religion in promoting citizenship. We have three three main themes in this report. First, concern about the spillover of illiberal values into public life as a result of socialization infused with patriarchy. Next, a problem for individual independence because of uncritical adherence to passed down beliefs and minimum experience of a broad array of alternate views. Finally, a concern for the growth of democratic values because of a type of radical sectarianism which makes them vulnerable. Arguments which move forward these themes have aimed at religious groups which are fundamentalist and isolationist. Even though many authors have noted that not all religious groups are similar to this, the general effect of this literature is to permit fundamentalist and isolationist groups to stand for religion typically via assumptions that they are different from other groups just in being more extreme…..

truth of their beliefs?
II. Does the stance of the prophetic tradition warrant respect, by those who
adhere to it, for the freedom of conscience and religious liberty of those who
hold other religious views or who hold none?
III. Does the prophetic tradition value the core values of citizenship
(reciprocity, tolerance and mutual respect) and accept that religious people
should not hold or act on the view that those who hold other convictions are
unworthy of fair treatment or equal rights as citizens?
