Why Governments Discriminate Against Religious Minorities

Feb. 17 

Why do governments discriminate against religious minorities? According to Jonathan Fox, author of the book, “Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me: Why Governments Discriminate against Religious Minorities”, this is actually two questions:

  • Why do some governments discriminate more than others?

  • Why are some minorities singled out for more discrimination than others?
