Religion in liberal societies is generally conceived to be an individual affair. But religions also unite believers in communities that have their own normative languages and means of settling disputes in effect, their own law. In accommodating religion, governments are often being asked to make room for a rival source of authority. Some states indeed some citizens find this challenge to be deeply troubling, while for others such accommodations are easier to make. These reactions explain much of the variation in the governance of religious diversity worldwide.
