Is There Room At The Inn?

Religious Celebration in Secular Settings

Should public spaces such as municipal buildings, parks, schools, universities, city streets, and shopping malls be places of religious observance and celebration? Is religious observance a private or public matter? Does the display of religious belief unite or divide us? Do dominant religions marginalize the rest or fairly represent a majority? Should public resources for religious display be distributed fairly among all religions or none at all? Is the public display of religious belief for the common good, or is its absence? Are there good reasons to remove religion from public view, or to preserve its presence?
