    To about a third of the people in the world you are correct.

    For the other 2/3, not so much.

    You're describing the government, which again is just a part of the country. The government is secular, the country is not. The country is in fact very religious.

    How can the country be "very religious" when the vast majority of its' population is only "nominally religious"?

    If the country is 'normally religious' then that proves my point that the country isn't secular, so I'll take that compromise

    They are indeed part, but not the whole

    Our laws are secular

    Our court system is secular

    Most of our institutions and businesses are secular

    Most of our media and cultural output is secular

    Etc...

    I think it's all nonsense, but if they're going to allow one religion to put up displays, then they have to allow all groups to do it.

    Sorry to hear that you're condoning violence by saying her actions were understandable.
    I didn't condone her actions. I pointed out that they're much less morally serious than the actions of the Satanists.
