This chapter discusses the problem of figuring out how the “saltiness” of faith can be restored without conjuring up the danger of dubious political entanglements, with reference to contemporary contexts. It looks at the recent reconnection of religion and political power in the United States, and delineates pedagogy of religious freedom that would safeguard the integrity of religious faith while also preserving its role as the salt of the earth.

Keywords: saltiness; political entanglements; contemporary contexts; religion; political power; United States; pedagogy; religious freedom; religious faith
