In accordance with secular liberalism, many scholars and politicians argue excluding religious perspectives from political decision-making is the only way to guarantee genuine neutrality, freedom and equality. However, this paper argues secular liberalism is actually a non-neutral theology which violently excludes other religious perspectives.

This produces genuine religious freedom which paradoxically transcends and ful ls the liberal ideals that secular liberalism proclaims but can never attain.
