I'm having trouble understanding these few lines:
In recent decades, we've come to assume that respecting our fellow citizens' moral and religious convictions means ignoring them. But this stance of avoidance can make for spurious respect.
What does 'to make for spurious respect' mean? I guess 'spurious' here means 'non-genuine', but I am confused of how this fits in to the phrasal verb 'to make for'.
