My sense is a lot of America would prefer *less* secularism and more religious influence - including the D-News - but since this involves an entirely different religion in a different part of the world those same religionists will probably take a "pass" on commenting on this issue.

Agree with your sentiments entirely. Our nation seems to abhor the policies of Islamic dominated governments. Yet, the fundamentalists of this country (and this includes many of the opinions in the DN) would lead you to believe that a religiously oriented government in this country would be a good thing.

I suppose that in the end we are all for freedom of religious expression until it violates our views of religious expression. This seems to me the very best argument for secular government that takes a complete hands off approach to anyone's religion.

Religion isn't the problem there or here. It's both.
