    I suspect that it means the method by which one is forced into not stating what one believes, without paying dire consequences for said action, so it isn't really evolution in the least, but coercion by those in power. If I threaten you with bodily harm or death for not believing what I believe is right, will you really evolve, or will you just keep your mouth shut?

    Social, intellectual, and political evolution are, I think, unavoidable. Freedom of religion would be more crucial in the sense that it is something that must be protected, especially considering that it has a growing underappreciation and lack of respect in the nation, at the moment.

    I know not that particular tongue.
    Trollspeak, in your book, is anything that doesn't elicit a sexual tickle.

    Actually, lots of religious people don't want to have their beliefs examined or their secrets told. That's why the Vatican just made it a crime to reveal their secrets.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Some vague notion of exactly how you are using these terms and why you feel they are mutually exclusionary, in other words a little substance to the original post, would help the poll.


    As it is I have no interest in voting in something so ill-defined.

    So you're cool with the Catholic Church hiding pedophile priests?

    I was wondering the same thing. I've never heard that term before.

    Why can't we have freedom of religion and gay marriage? Why would we have to choose?
