Condoleeza Rice spoke recently at the World Congress of Religions. She gave an insightful view of the role religion may play in public life. She spoke of the 'dangers of state religions, but said, "I do think that there has to be room for religious people in the political life of the country... Increasingly, around the world, it is acceptable to isolate religious people -- to take to extremes the idea of state and church..." "I think it is particularly troubling. Religious people need to have a place in the public square. What is dangerous is when faith and religion have been appropriated as nationalism."
