In Praise of Secularism

Secular societies, on the whole, are more peaceful and have more freedom than those societies which are dominated by religion. And the evidence to support this is fairly high. Some of the most religious societies, are also the most corrupt, repressive and warmongering. Look at Saudi Arabia or the Middle East.
Untangling church and state was the very thing which allowed greater personal freedom and less conflict over religion.
