The predominantly Catholic Slovenia has chosen to separate church and state in post-communist times, by taking its inspiration from France and the United States. In virtue of this model, religion is not offered in public schools at any level, although “education about religion is allowed.” For the first fifteen years of post-communist rule, the Liberal Democrats strictly enforced the church-state separation model, but since then a number of concessions have been obtained by politicians with religious beliefs. Parties are not prohibited from using religious symbols, but religious groups have remained relatively neutral. Legislation pertaining to homosexual behavior and abortion remains liberal by Eastern European standards.
