This article discusses the continued existence and characteristics of religion in a post-secular society and its influences on this society. The religious world is not a-secular and the secular world not a-religious. Attention is given to reasons that the secularisation thesis has not been realised and the role of modernism and pluralism in this development is discussed. Reference is made to the notion of a people's religion and the role of post-secularism in theology and postmodernism are discussed. The new South African context, in which a neutral state which does not promote any specific religion has replaced the previous Christian state, is discussed. Reference is made to the way African traditional religion fits into a post-secular environment. The argument closes with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as an example of how the religious and secular interact.
