B. The Unity of All Religious Believers

Question 9

Who Decides which Religious Truths Are Public?

The people must decide. They do so, in a democratic republic, through the election of representatives to public office. The true standard, however, is whether a particular religious truth can be known by reason, and thus independently of any belief in a supernatural revelation. Only free argument and debate can decide whether a particular religious statement is evident to reason.
