He continued, "all voices need to be heard in the public square. Neither religious nor secular voices should be silenced. Furthermore, we should not expect that because some of our views emanate from religious principles, they will automatically be accepted or given preferential status. But it is also clear such views and values are entitled to be reviewed on their merits."
An editorial emphasis at the Deseret News is the importance of faith in the community. We believe that active faith not only tutors the habits of self-governance required for a successful democracy, but that it strengthens civil society and improves human flourishing. Accordingly, in the coming months, you can expect to see on our pages more in-depth coverage and commentary on the vital role played by faith in our community.
