Konstitucinis valstybės ir bažnyčios atskyrimo principas: Socialinės taikos metodologija

Translated title of the contribution: The constitutional principle of the separation of church and state: The methodology of social peace

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article provides an analysis of certain aspects of the principle of the separation of church and state. The principle of the separation of church and state is, first of all, a philosophical-political theory whose discourse substantiates the need for such separation and formulates concrete models for the implementation of this principle. The essential, conceptual, statement of the principle of the separation of church and state implies the necessity for the disconnection of the discharging of state functions from churches or religious organisations. The theory of the origin of the separation of church and state should be related to the historical development of human rights and freedoms. When in the philosophical doctrine, legal norms, and in the actual social relations, an individual human being became equal in qualities to another human being, the preconditions for the formation of the principle of the separation of church and state appeared. The recognition that the individual himself can freely choose and confess his world outlook and that no majority has any right to impose on him a different world outlook, was the turning point in history. Then the need for the consolidation of freedom of religion came into being. The argument that it is freedom of religion that is the ontological element in the structure of the theory of the separation of church and state is a reasonable one.
