Ex-Archbishop Lord Carey laughably criticised the UK's "I do do God" PM for failing to counter 'aggressive secularism'....
(The 'promise' is also alienating for UK republicans)
Secularism is all-inclusive. It isn't aggressive secularism or militant atheism that should be of any concern. It is aggressive religionism regarding political and social questions.
The UK is lumbered with a Scout Promise that encourages children to lie by implying they believe in a god(s)....
Some religionists and some church leaders also support having 26 unelected clerics in the upper house.
Religion = superstition
It's divisive and more trouble than its worth.

Of course, the countries without a strong secular tradition are afflicted particularly badly...
"The Islamic Society Forum, a coalition of Islamist groups, stated that the potential five-year sentence was not enough, and that Alexander should be executed."

I read on one website that a ram and (another incident) a cow successfully killed the people who were trying to sacrifice them (in religious festival or ritual). Occasionally, it's difficult not to feel more sympathy for the animals than their would-be slaughterers.
