In this paper, the argument is that secular feminism and public theology accomplish little in separation to one another. If both are working toward a more just horizon, their inability to work together simply confirms that their methodologies are flawed even while contending they practice justice while separate from one another. In this paper I contend that the force of violence that is spread by fundamentalist religious groups has been exacerbated by the community division between the secular and the religious sphere of human life. Secular social movements like feminism and Christian public theology have failed to fill this gap partly because of their maintenance of this separation which fails to see what each in conjunction have to offer people seeking a home.
