Chapter Summary

The objective of this chapter is to further substantiate the claim that most, if not all, of the states that are officially entangled with a single religion - including the states that do, but also including many states that do not, actively interfere with the observance of religious laws - fail to fully comply with the principle that no one should be treated differently because of one's religion or belief. It is demonstrated, firstly, that the large majority of existing regimes of positive state identification with a religion are not devoid of forms of institutionalised discrimination or de facto practices of discrimination on the ground of religion or belief. Secondly, it is equally highlighted that in some secular or separationist states the ideals of state secularism and separationism have come to be considered ends in themselves.
