Qatars Islamic Education textbook for grade 11 devotes an entire chapter to the topic of secularism and the dangers it represents. The book describes secularism as a negative phenomenon that originated in the West and was injected into the Islamic world by the colonialist powers in a bid to distance the Muslims from their religion and raise generations disconnected from Islam. The chapter lists the negative characteristics of secularism and its detrimental effects, and stresses that Islam views it as heresy.
Anybody in here interested in an exploration of secularism? Does it actually exists? RELIGIOUS MEDIATION OF SOCIO-CULTURAL: CONCEPTUAL DIFFICULTY OF SECULARISM In what follows, an attempt is made to highlight the logical difficulty there is in the ways of formulating the idea of secularism as a principle of disjunction between the affairs of spiritual and
And that was how secularism began to be ripped apart. The nationalism that had developed throughout the 1960s, one that envisaged a purely Bengali landscape, was under attack from some rather unexpected quarters. Do not forget that even leftists of the pro-Beijing brand were doing all they could to undermine the cause of the state. Men like Abdul Haq solicited, in 1974, Zulfikar Ali Bhuttos assistance in overthrowing the government of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. It was through these men, these elements, that the deconstruction and destruction of secular politics truly began. It served as a natural corollary to what was to follow. But let the point not be missed that when secularism lay flat on its face in Bangladesh, it was not the Bengalis who pushed it into the mud. That came by way of the coup makers of August 1975. The damage done on August 15 was nowhere more intense than in the return of the "Zindabad" factor in national politics ...
This chapter was written for a conference in the wake of the encyclical Evangelium Vitae (1995), which spoke of the culture of death, referring to cultures in which the intending of death is legally or socially accepted. The meaning of culture is first considered, and then the influence of secularism (considered in the light of Platos analysis as in Chapter 3 of this volume, and of Owen Chadwicks tracing of the secularization of the European mind to the axiom that miracles do not happen. Topics considered include creative causality and providence, freedom of choice, dignity, Nietzsche, the significance of intention and its denial by many proportionalist theologians, and secularism by default.

Turkey Table of Contents The expectation of the secular ruling elite that the policies of the 1920s and 1930s would diminish the role of religion in public life did not materialize. As early as 1925, religious grievances were one of the principal causes of the Seyh Sait rebellion, an uprising in southeastern Turkey that may have claimed as many as 30,000 lives before being suppressed. Following the relaxation of authoritarian political controls in 1946, large numbers of people began to call openly for a return to traditional religious practice. During the 1950s, even certain political leaders found it expedient to join religious leaders in advocating more state respect for religion (see Multiparty Politics, 1946-60, ch. 1).. A more direct manifestation of the growing reaction against secularism was the revival of the Sufi brotherhoods. Not only did suppressed tarikatlar such as the Kadiri, Mevlevi, and Naksibendi reemerge, but new orders were formed, including the Nurcular, S leyman i, and ...
Liberalism, Secularism, and Their Effects On Our Global Culture - Liberals no longer accept leaders who personally hold Christian beliefs
Secularism is not just a political event, it is a mental state where God is isolated and exiled, only popping up from time to time when we require it.
Here are a couple of Islamic examples as well.. In Egypt, theres a minor crisis going on while drafting a new constitution. The secularist minority in the relevant commission is boycotting the Islamist-led process which is leading toward a stricter application of Islamic law. Some Islamists now accuse the boycotting liberals of attempting to impose a Western liberal ideal on a Muslim country-charging them with a tyranny of the minority. Many conservative Muslims genuinely feel that their religious freedom is violated by secular policies, as it interferes with their ability to fully live in compliance with Islamic ideals as a community. Hence, according to their concept of religious freedom, it is secularist interference with their ability to impose their moral ideals through public policy that constitutes a violation of religious freedom.. Meanwhile, in Turkey, conservative Muslims in power see provision of religious education in state schools as a duty. Fatma Şahin, the Minister of Family and ...
The Vanguard of Theology and its Expression. The great culture today is based upon the principle of self-determination: secularism presents man in his own image. The most avid promoter of today s great culture is the mass media which, through the peculiar dynamic which exists between society and the media, is constantly generating popular versions of secularism. In this relatively new cultural territory, conditioned and limited as it is by its quest for efficiency, mass appeal and profit, many human values find little room for manoeuvre. Moral values, spiritual values, intellectual values, aesthetic values amongst others, are given limited scope. In the secular world, man in his own image, has become constrained, vulnerable and superficial.. Perhaps there is a sense from popular culture that the more cultured aspects of society offer no more than elitism or issues for special interest groups. Yet the experience of humanity, which manifests a profound yearning for betterment, expressed above all ...
As soon as the Tunisian elections results were announced with Nidaa Tounes overtaking Ennahdha party, celebrations of the "Islamists" defeat at the hands of the "secularists" got underway across the media in France and many other western capitals. The historical context of a country in the aftermath of a revolution, its socio-political circumstances and complex regional conditions was banished from the narrative. Between cliches of bad "Islamists" "defeated" by good "secularists" and jubilant resurrections of old prophesies of the "failure of political Islam," the contest was portrayed as a battle of ideologies and world views.. Such faulty conclusions derive from false premises: from the tendency to view political parties and movements with an Islamic reference frame as metaphysical ahistorical entities outside the laws of socio-politics. Their decisions and conduct are only explainable by reference to theology and ideology. Their religious references are seen as the key to their successes in ...
I doubt, that you can call Russia largely european. The Bolschewiki successfully prevented this. And it will take Russia still a long, long time to recover from this nightmare. The current wealth and power of Russia is due to the resources of its earth not its people. As allready mentioned, Russia is dying faster than almost every other people. You cannot get people by force to make more babies. Demographics do not work that way. There seem to be at least two factors related closely to demographics. Alphabetisation and secularism. The more primitive a society is, the more fertile. That is the reason for the baby boom in Islam. But now Iran has one of the lowest fertiliy rates. Algeria too. With a few exeptions (Palestine) the fertilty rates in the muslim world are declining. Later and not so drastically as in the west, but still declining. Here comes the issue of secularism in.But the people we have to deal with are allready born. The reason why appeasement parties still attract a lot of votes ...
When President Bush announced that he favored "Intelligent Design" be taught in schools on an equal footing with "Darwinian Evolution," he inflamed the Secularists and the Liberal Left. The Left has no tolerance for any challenge to their superiority and their holy grail of Darwinian Evolution. An uproar of whining erupted from the Liberals. Many tried to characterize President Bush as being against science.. There were accusations that Intelligent Design is based on faith and not on science. Such arguments have intimidated those who understand science and believe in God. Many scientists in academia or public service fear for their careers and most say nothing.. In his Inaugural Address, President Obama said, "We will restore science to its rightful place . . ." What is the rightful place of science? Was Obama referring to politics, government, public or private research, education, or something else? From what we have seen and heard thus far, President Obama appears to hold the politically ...
This book conceives of religion-making broadly as the multiple ways in which social and cultural phenomena are configured and reconfigured within the matrix of a world-religion discourse that is historically and semantically rooted in particular Western and predominantly Christian experiences, knowledges, and institutions.

Gonzo. I disagree with some things Taslima says too. But Im not afraid to ask her questions about it at conferences and I dont dismiss entire conferences because her face is on the poster. She also says some great things: its not like Rupert fucking Shelldrake is on the poster and the conference will be about how to masturbate yourself to sheer oblivion. Its not as though the speakers - including Taslima - wont be receptive to questions and very likely sitting around in the bar afterwards to discuss things like this. I find Taslimas views on some things troubling, but it just makes me want to ask her about them, not to dismiss entire conferences as bad because shes there. Whatever my disagreements with her, shes a brilliant speaker and if you havent seen her perform then youre missing out. I disagree with some things Richard Dawkins says too, especially lately, but Id still go and listen to him talk because he still has a lot of good things to say. If he said something I disagreed ...
The Islamic terrorists often are men who has no job, no future ... cannot read nor write. Cannot vote. They have nothing to lose, but we have so much to lose. So they decided to target us. Fair trade-off, would you say, Ben? That is how it works in this world -- thats why they crashed the planes into Pentagon and World Trade Center. It is because they knew they had nothing to lose, but we have so much to lose. ...
Its important for all of us - whether religious or not - to defend the secular viewpoint in public institutions, law and policy. For one, because secularism means that you will never be forced to attend or participate in the ceremonies or practices of religions other than your own.. Defenders of religious expression sometimes forget the fact that often, its only contingently the case that youre defending the expression of a religion you happen to belong to, and that this coincidence cant be guaranteed. If your neighbourhood school were over time to evolve into one of a different faith, you might suddenly wish for the school to be stubbornly secular.. A second reason to defend secularity, at least in my view, is because a secular environment is well suited to fostering free and rational choice and taking responsibility for our choices, as I argued in this column defending the rights of children to wear religious headgear at public schools. Its clearer to see the relationship between our ...
Over at Atheist Revolution they are talking about "secular fundamentalism." Vjack suggested that there is no such thing as secular fundamentalism, and sought to provide reasons why.. I rise in defense of his claim. "Secular fundamentalism" does not exist, because "secularism" is the reasonable middle ground between fundamentalist extremes.. Atheist Fundamentalism. Atheist fundamentalism, or the theocratic equivalent, is a possibility. It is not at all impossible to imagine a cabal of atheists banning all religious practice, prohibiting prayer even in private, shutting all the churches, and banning any organization that strikes its leaders as religious. There is nothing that will prohibit such a society from requiring teachers to teach that no God exists, that those who are religious have abandoned their senses and are not to be trusted in positions of power and lack any rational sense of right and wrong. There is no violation of the laws of nature in an atheist society adopting a national ...
From the periphery, Ethiopian Muslim protesters have recently turned a page in the history of the country. They have proven that demonstrations by religious groups can be peaceful, that secularism can be the aim of these groups instead of their nemesis and that a radical Islamist agenda doesn't have to be the dominant one.
They will remove a democratically elected government by force because they disagree with it? Is that something that will endure? For how long can you keep doing that? Why hold elections at all then? Why doesnt the army just go ahead and rule?. If you want a democratic country to go towards a secular state, youre going to have to convince the people that its in their best interests to do so (manufacturing consent and all that). If the majority actually want and vote for a religiously conservative party and then the military steps in and kicks them out, youre asking for trouble.. If the poll numbers on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headscarf_controversy_in_Turkey are true, I think its obvious that Turkeys secularity is something that the government is trying to keep but that the people dont really want. The Turkish brand of secularism is sounding very much like a bad religion itself. Turkeys case aside,the point Im trying to make before we went of tangentially is that if you want ...
The twenty-four chapters in this volume seek to argue for and illustrate a central element in the authors theory of natural law: that the main tenets of personal and political morality, and of a good legal order, are taught both by reason (arguments accessible to everyone) and by authentic divine revelation (teachings accessible to all who have a reasonable faith in its witnesses). The first Part includes eight chapters. Two attend to the idea of public reason, both in its proper sense and its Rawlsian deformation. One vindicates in outline for treating a religion as part of public reason, and for giving constitutional protection to religions (within due limits now being tested by the emergence of a politically aggressive religion in Western societies). One takes up Platos warning about the political evils of some kinds of secularism, another surveys the principles of a sound relation between religion and state, and the last addresses Catholics about their participation in liberal discourse and
The real struggle in Turkey is not between the religious and the non-religious, but between those who value pluralism and those who want the victory of their ideology.. Adrian Pabst, who is Leverhulme Fellow at the University of Nottingham, has written an analysis for The National which is full of wisdom. He declares:. [B]oth the secularists and the AKP need to abandon their intransigent positions in favour of compromise. The secularists can no longer pretend that Ataturks ideology is universal, neutral and tolerant. They must accept that a large part of the population does not share their secular creed and never will because it is seen as a threat to the free expression of religious faith.. The Kemalists are wrong to treat religion as a purely private phenomenon with no public import. They must recognise that all belief systems and social practices are political. They should look to the best traditions of secularism that separate state and mosque without divorcing religion from politics. In a ...
First, Sibley seems to confuse "secular" (making no reference to religion) with "atheist" (in the strong sense of denying gods). To a certain school of thought, any statement that does not begin with an invocation and end with a benediction, is ipso facto impious. But lets be honest: the party whose ox is being gored here -- whose prayers are now omitted from school, whose scriptures are no longer taught during "religious instruction" -- is not just some generic "faith", not some non-denominational "spirituality": it is Christianity (and please, dont give me any tokenistic crap about "Judeo-Christianity", just to prove that youre not really a bigot.) And that is what official secularism is for: because inevitably, officially sanctioned observances are always one partys prayer, but not someone elses; it always comes down to the government endorsing one faith over another. Several centuries of blood were spilled in Europe before we finally got the clue that government must be for all the ...
It is not whether a belief is true, whether it is rational, that has been essential to the argument, despite the protestations to the contrary. No one expends too much energy complaining about people going to an astrologer because those that do dont hold any political power and are only likely to harm their own purse if they are foolish enough to think that they should make life-decisions on the basis of the notion that there are only twelve types of people in this world. In measuring harm, surely its the human impulse to enforce belief, whether that be rational or not, that has lead to the greatest harm? Here I would contend that while it is not possible to determine whether religion has been on balance more harmful historically than secularism, I do think one can say with a reasonable amount of confidence that the marriage of cognitive infallibility and state power - whether religious or secular - has been the root of more human misery than the politics of scepticism. Talking from opposite ...

I will interpret your question to mean whether I think secularism will strengthen in the U.S. over time. I am not ordinarily an optimist, but I take heart from the incensed response to the existence of a mere three contemporary books debunking religion. While the proportion of Americans who believe in Biblical revelation remains depressingly high and doesnt yet show much sign of decline, the reaction of religions conservative apologists to a few atheists sticking their heads out of the foxhole suggests to me a possible nervousness about religions hold in the future. First Things editor Joseph Bottum calls secularists "superannuated," in the aforementioned book Why I Turned Right. Wall Street Journal columnist Dan Henninger claims a religious provenance for the following "American" virtues: "fortitude, prudence, temperance, justice, charity, hope, integrity, loyalty, honor, filial respect, mercy, diligence, generosity and forbearance." Yet Classical philosophers and poets celebrated many of ...
The face of European populism is, these days, white and bristly. And it answers to a comic name. Meet "Zottel," the billy goat mascot of the Swiss Peoples Party (SVP). Zottel, the partys "bleating" heart, was conscripted to enliven Octobers federal elections; and, as any Swiss will tell you, hes become a celebrity in his own right.. Campaign literature describes a party beholden to Switzerland, and to no other. And the partys electoral platform invites judges to censure practices at odds with "Swiss values." These, they write, include genital excision, "crimes of honor," polygamy, and discrimination against women. The party also speaks to freedom of conscience and opinion, while rejecting, in the tradition of Swiss secularism, "political claims of religious inspiration and their symbols." This refers to minarets, specifically.. The party kicked off a signature drive in May to force an obligatory referendum banning minarets, which Blochers party considers both an accessory of worship and a ...
Hmm, I dont see much separation of "Church and State" here, do you? Enter Nicolas Sarkozy, a Hungarian Jew pretending to be a French gentile, and all around alcoholic womanizer. Recently the Mossad midget was ranting about banning the burqa. Ho hum, yet another feeble attempt to pander to the extremist vote. One would think that the President of France would have more urgent matters to tackle, like the pathetic state of the French economy instead of worrying about the clothing a few dozen Muslim woman CHOOSE to wear. Lets get a few things straight : the burqa is not a religious form of dress hence it in no way infringes upon the bogus "secularism" of the state. Grow up and stop behaving like a bunch of spoilt hypocritical brats, we dont live our lives to please the likes of you. If you really believe in freedom, you would let people go about their business instead of forcing your inferior sad excuse of a culture upon them. Thats right, I said it. Putting aside wine, cheese, a 35 hour work ...
Pope Benedict XVI argued that to suggest that the absence in society of a religious, specifically a Catholic inspired ethnic, meant an inevitable descent into a liberal secularism, was to mischaracterise British society, and the views of the majority of the Churchs flock. Are we really ruled, he enquired, by nothing more solid than social consensus? In a less pessimistic view of society and mankind then that of which Newman held, Pope Benedict XVI explained that society was not inherently amoral. Most men and women, he said, remain driven by a clear sense of right and wrong. The marginalisation of religion, he explained, particularly Christianity, was one of the single greatest threats to the modern world, as was occurring in even the most tolerant of nations. There are those, he exclaimed, who would advocate that the voice of religion be silenced, or at least relegated to the purely private sphere ...
Commentary by Wayne Madsen After the U.S. revolutionaries defeated the British and the embryonic United States was formed, the nation had two paths before it. It could have followed the path laid out by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin and become a truly enlightened democratic republic founded upon strict secularism and revolutionary principles of liberty and justice for all. Or it had the choice of following the cautious and limited democracy, based on a strong central government, as preached by George Washington, John Adams, and Alexander Hamilton. Unfortunately, for the United States, the country chose the latter option, thus ensuring that the present-day United States of America is a nation controlled by an elite oligarch that does not differ in thought and practice from the arcane monarchy of Great Britain, from which the American revolutionaries fought so hard to break free. The commander of the Continental Army and the first president of the United States, George ...
Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham says Americas enemies today are "godless secularism" and those who "call themselves progressives."
20] The United States deep social problems are all the more disturbing because the nation enjoys exceptional per capita wealth among the major western nations (Barro and McCleary; Kasman; PEW; UN Development Programme, 2000, 2004). Spending on health care is much higher as a portion of the GDP and per capita, by a factor of a third to two or more, than in any other developed democracy (UN Development Programme, 2000, 2004). The U.S. is therefore the least efficient western nation in terms of converting wealth into cultural and physical health. Understanding the reasons for this failure is urgent, and doing so requires considering the degree to which cause versus effect is responsible for the observed correlations between social conditions and religiosity versus secularism. It is therefore hoped that this initial look at a subject of pressing importance will inspire more extensive research on the subject. Pressing questions include the reasons, whether theistic or non-theistic, that the ...

That very omission confirms his point and approach. He seems to be trying to get through mainly to faithful "preachers", and not so much to the "loose minister who washes his hands" of Church moral teaching, one of which he has just excommunicated. And the Pope includes amongst these primary addressees those who "try to recover a past" state of affairs, with an "inward-looking", "static" vision of reality. Might these be the many commentators to the extent that they just cant seem to hear his urgent invitation to engage modern culture in a discerning and purifying manner. And the Pope argues that failing to hear this we risk becoming "a nest protecting our own mediocrity" - and one might add, continue offering grist to medias falsifying mill. Its almost as if such conservative faces, and ears, have been set like flint against the idea of real development, perhaps hardened over the years in which we have failed to stop the rise of secularism. No wonder the media is so much in the hands of our ...

Ravi Zacharias International Ministries seeks to reach and challenge those who shape the ideas of culture with the credibility and the beauty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To questions of the skeptic and the believer we offer an apologetic - we give an answer - to the counter claims of secularism and other worldviews. We address the intellectual and existential assumptions of our culture, realizing that for some, the door to the heart is through the mind, and for others through the imagination. Our vision is threefold: evangelism, apologetics and training. One of the great losses of our time is critical thinking and RZIM is committed to reaching this generation around the world. We seek to remove the barriers to the cross for the skeptic and we prepare Christians to give a reason for the hope within.

The plaintiff, a resident of Netanya, lives near Laniado Hospital, is treated by a doctor who works in Laniado, and her HMO is in agreement with the hospital, so that there is no economic or bureaucratic impediment to carrying out the treatments there. The plaintiff has been in a long-term relationship with a man to whom she is not married, and was rejected on the grounds that the hospital does not give fertility treatments to unmarried women, since this is contrary to Jewish law.. According to the hospital, the demand that the couple be married stems from the halachic view that "the family unit is a supreme institution and value, and even more so when this family unit is being forged.". The hospital further argued that the religious norm that underlies its position is the obligation to register the biological father as the father of the newborn, lest the offspring engage with its sibling from the same donor in the future, and give birth to a mamzer.. The majority of the rabbis rule that an ...
