    All religionists of every flavor want their religion to rule the world. Baptists want everyone to be Baptist and they denigrate other religions. Catholics are much the same, but they also go well out of their way to denigrate Protestantism in general. The United Pentacostals are a very devout crowd who live in much the same manner as the devout Muslims, but they too favor their religion over all the others. Upshot? Don’t listen to religionists of any flavor when they cry about the vicissitudes of “secularism.” Check anywhere you please and every where you find the religionists in charge of politics, there will be bloodshed and disorder.

      The irony of this statement is that Western, secular countries have caused most of chaos that the world has seen in the past few decades. For what? To simply spread secularism in non-secular countries by using the dogma of “Human Rights” to continue their quest of cultural imperialism. Believing states have a right to defend themselves against secular drivel, particularly countries with rich religious cultures. Perhaps the proponents of “live and let live” should let sovereign countries dictate their internals matters as they please.
