SPECIAL: "Let’s assume for the sake of argument that there is a true moral principle that requires religious toleration."

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that there is a true moral principle that requires religious toleration.
if we should tolerate religion, we should tolerate non-religious practices and people who have rich, non-religious conceptions of the good. So there is a broader principle of what we might call doctrine toleration,
we should include conceptions of justice along with conceptions of the religious or secular good. I conceptions of justice like libertarianism and social democracy.
This means that if libertarians attempt to coercively impose libertarianism on non-libertarianism, they violate the principle of doctrine toleration
Public reason liberalism is a specification of the principle of doctrine toleration
The best argument against the principle of doctrine toleration is that it is incoherent. There are no institutions that are neutral... All that is left for us is to push our views onto each other, rendering political life a kind of war between necessarily opposed groups...
My book is a possibility proof against this objection
