Hebermas assumes that, with development of modern democratic society, the function of religion in fostering social integration is essentially transferred to secularized communicative reason, ” the socially integrative and expressive functions that were at first fulfilled by ritual practice pass over to communicative action, which states that communicatively acting persons reach agreements concerning their normative validity claims through rational argument and “only those claims norms can claim to be valid that meet (or could meet) with approval of all affected in their capacity as participants in a practical discourse” (Hebermas 1991a, p.93). Religion is in danger of blocking precisely this communicative action it does not leave the religious participants in discourse free to enter the presupposition-less space of rational communication, but instead equips them with clear directives concerning the course of discourse. Hence Hebermas calls on the religious citizens not to abstoulize their one sided (moral) judgments but instead to submit to conditions of a liberal state. From perspective of theory of communicative action, religion ultimately appears to belong to historical developmental phase along the path to modern, democratically constituted society.
