← The spectre of militant secularism

I'm always a bit confused and/or frustrated by anyone who uses "secularism" and "atheism" interchangeably. They have very distinct meanings. One doesn't have to be an atheist to be a secularist, for example. Confusing the two terms only makes the struggle to maintain secular governments and secular societies all the more difficult.
