How Religion Undermines Compromise

(p.221) 12 How Religion Undermines Compromise
Religion, Intolerance, and Conflict

Walter Sinnott-Armstrong

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of religious beliefs on compromises. It distinguishes between thin compromises, where what is given up does not include basic values and personal relationships; and thick compromises, where basic values and personal relationships are sacrificed, at least to some degree. It argues that some think compromises are good, but that religious beliefs can undermine the possibility of some such good thick compromises being made.
