Defending the Separation of Laws! Keep Fanatics Off OUR Constitution!

Islamic Revival Tests Bosnia’s Secular Cast

Religion is personal and should stay out of civil law because of the diversity of different belief systems. Once a society starts adopting extremist religious views the society starts to fall apart, and ends up in war after war. Everyone needs to wake up because this isn’t happening in Bosnia alone, and they are not Islamic extremists.

There are those that don’t believe in “separation of church and state,” and they claim there is no “wall” that separates their religious views from civil law.  That separations has been common law, and common understanding for generations, this is why we are not a theocratic nation, but a republic that respects that separation and that congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…

If this is not true then should we have Islamic law written into our constitution?  No, because it is true that we have separation of church and state, so lets fight to keep it separate and pure.

Islamic Revival Tests Bosnia’s Secular Cast [read more]
Religious and national identity have long been fused in multifaith Bosnia.

It was tradition in villages to refer to neighbors by their religion — Muslim, Orthodox, Catholic, rather than as Bosniak, Serb or Croat.

In the nation-building that followed Dayton, that practice has become stronger.

In Sarajevo, a predominantly Muslim city, dozens of streets named after Communist revolutionaries were renamed after Muslim heroes, and political parties stressing Muslim identity gained large constituencies.

Catholic Croats and Orthodox Serbs, meanwhile, cleave to their own religious and cultural identities. Church attendance is on the rise; in the Serb Republic, even ministries and police departments have their own Orthodox patron saints.

Muharem Bazdulj, deputy editor of the daily Oslobodenje, the voice of liberal, secular Bosnia, said he feared the growth of Wahhabism, the conservative Sunni movement originating in Saudi Arabia that aims to strip away foreign and corrupting influences.

Analysts say Saudi-financed organizations have invested about $700 million in Bosnia since the war, often in mosques.

Separation of Church and State! Keep civil laws and religious dogma separate. Yes there is such a thing, but fanatics want you to think otherwise. This is America, not some theocracy!
