The volume deals with the topic of Religious Freedom in Europe and North America, although not exclusively.The contributions argue that a clear separation of State and Church prevents privileged religions, as well as evangelical movements supported by state interests, from becoming power-political factors that seek to mould a society according to their own values and to their benefit. All too often, politicians are happy to accept ideological support on behalf of a religious community or a religious grouping, and then seek to further the interests and to promote these groups. Even though the two countries demonstrate differences such constellations may be identified in both the USA and in Russia.
