On the constants in religion – those aspects of religion which do not change with a change in circumstances and conditions – a believer has the right to seek understanding of their meaning through discussion and inquiry. Likewise, a non-believer has the right to discuss them whether it is to understand them or argue against them.

As for the variable aspects of religion – those things which are subject to change when conditions change – it is the right of both a believer and non-believer to engage in discussion and inquiry about their meaning whether it is to understand them or argue against them.

The right to engage in discussion about the constants and variables of religion is a right that needs only to conform to acceptable standards of academic, intellectual and principled discussion.
