One of the worst secularist arguments against the religiosity of Europe (almost laughable in itself) that comes across more as whining from a kid who thinks that everyone should agree with him alone. It totally skips the idea that the tradition of religion is a strong part of the European identity (whether she likes it or not) and can't seem to grasp the breadth of the word 'secular'. I don't have time to refute her point by point...but it's probably not really all that necessary. Once again we see it...equality without the responsibility. Secularism is obviously on the same plane of religion (at least it seems like it in terms of irrefutability), right? But it is also the basis of governmental policy...still looking for the conflict of interests? Give it time, it makes sense when you read stuff like this.
