Militant secularism?

Militant - Combative and aggressive in support of a political or social cause, and typically favouring extreme, violent, or confrontational methods.

Secularism - The principle of separation between government institutions and the persons mandated to represent the State from religious institutions and religious dignitaries.

So how can secularism be militant? What next, militant justice, fairness, equality, democracy, human rights?
