Abstract

Is state support for religion compatible with autonomy-based liberalism and its neutrality constraint? This is the core question of this chapter, in which it will be argued that religion is, in contemporary liberal societies, a perfectionist good. Accordingly, state support is, as a general principle not required by justice. Nonetheless, a policy of support can sometimes be allowed in order to guarantee equal access to autonomy, but only if certain criteria are fulfilled.
