The importance of religions is growing globally and the role of religion in political decision-making has strengthened. Examples of this include the restriction of abortion rights on religious grounds and the success of political parties with religious affiliations in elections in different countries. Religion has also been used as a tool of politics and influence in Finnish society, for instance, in connection with the reform of the Marriage Act. Alongside traditional religions, new ideologies such as posthumanism and dataism are emerging.
