Abstract

BREYTENBACH, Cilliers. Fundamental rights and religion: The space between Cathedral and Parliament. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.1, pp.01-05. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I1.2989.

This history of exclusion from basic rights in South Africa until fundamental rights of every individual were entrenched in the constitution illustrates that respect for sanctity of every person is the basis of the freedom of all the people of South Africa and that all religious communities should protect the Bill of Rights. Neither confessional nor denominational considerations should be put to the fore; the focus should fall instead on the common concern of all religions for the sanctity of the individual.
