However, whether it is a German Nazi or a French secularist forcing secular values, beliefs and practices on religious people, the result is the same - a denial of the basic human right to practise one's religion unhindered. Contrary to what Mr O'Brien and others would have us believe, secularism is not a neutral stance; it is as much a statement of belief as any religion. Indeed, it is the religion of many people in the world today.
Wearing religious clothes or symbols is not a 'rejection of the secular state'; sincere belief in God alone does that.
