From Chicago with love

This report is an attempt to create a particular kind of world, one defined by the projection of American power—a certain kind of religious power… Assuming that we agree with Sullivan, as I do, that “established religion is by definition not accepting of ‘pluralism, freedom, and democracy,’” it becomes clear that this report is not about engaging religious communities to promote either religious freedom or democracy. It is about the projection of American power through the securitization of religion.]

Heehs and Banerji seem to be keen on an analogical project. [TNM]
