    I am shocked at the level of this discussion! One has to see deep into the topic of secularism. It blew my top off on Mormon bigamy law. & that the Mormon was right! NOT SO: you have gotten into this paradox because you have failed to spell out the “specifications” of a Secular System. I will like to submit my thesis totally undoing your feebleness about power of secular system ; I will end by demonstrating why India would have/could have/should have succeeded were it not for poor education of the masses of hindoo fanatics and huge $$ pumped into undoing its framework. There, Education failed the middle class. I will try to write an essay on this topic.
