Religious democracy and the liberal principle of legitimacy

Philosophy and Public Affairs 37 (2):136-170 (2009)
Abstract
I argue against Rawls's claim that the liberal principle of legitimacy would be selected in the original position in addition to a democratic principle. Since a religious democracy could satisfy the democratic principle, the parties in the original position would not exclude it as illegitimate.
