Hmm. Conflicting values. What a concept. I know of no area of importance where my personal values do not under
some circumstances come into conflict. I value harmony and peace; but sometimes one must engage in disputes -
with words and with wars.
I like to make room for religion in public spaces, but there are many problems with doing so.
I think this is not an establishment violation, or should not be. So, I guess I am not a good liberal.
