FROM LIFE: The Political dimension of faith
Profs. Oliver Friggieri reflects on faith as a matter of life and its effect on politics in the Maltese context
Can the Constitution ignore a major collective dimension such as faith? Is culture complete without its transcendental component? Is there art which is not intrinsically religious? Is it possible for a political party to claim that it is non-confessional, given that it is granted electoral support for its professed beliefs? Is there a specific point where all contrasting standpoints are equally represented in any document of national import? Does plurality (or pluralism) by definition exclude or include? Can a politician afford to suppress his/her religious convictions in public life? Is faith public or private? Can different religions abide together and consequently express the sentiment of a multicultural community? Which are the limits within which ‘political correctness’ is actually democratic and fair?
