Abstract

IN ENGLISH: Freedom to believe and not to believe is guaranteed by the Croatian Constitution. This paper will consider some cases of positive and negative praxis of respecting/violating of this right at the example of some minority religious communities and irreligious people in Croatia. Paper covers the next main points: religious situation in Croatia, legal framework of the state - Church (religious communities) relationship, examples of respecting religious freedom and examples of violating the right to religious freedom in the state, political and civil society. Conclusions will show that Croatia has developed a model which privileges the Catholic Church, accepts and cooperates with some other traditional religious communities, but occasionally discriminates against some other religion, and people with different religious and irreligious convictions. --------------- IN CROATIAN: Sloboda vjerovanja i nevjerovanja garantirana je hrvatskim Ustavom. Ovaj rad razmatra primjere pozitivne i negativne prakse poštivanja/kršenja tih prava na primjeru manjih vjerskih zajednica i kategorije nereligioznih ljudi u Hrvatskoj. Rad se bavi sljedećim temama: religijskom situacijom u Hrvatskoj, pravnim okvirom odnosa između države i Crkve (vjerskih zajednica), primjerima poštivanja vjerske slobode i primjerima kršenja prava na vjersku slobodu u državi, političkom i civilnom društvu. Zaključci pokazuju da Hrvatska razvija model koji privilegira Katoličku crkvu, koji prihvaća suradnju s nekim drugim tradicionalnim vjerskim zajednicama, ali povremeno diskriminira neke druge zajednice i ljude s drugačijim religioznim i nereligioznim uvjerenjima.
