    Well, I'd say he is the least 'negative' one.

    They are doing God's work a lot of the time, as far as I'm concerned.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm really not sure secularism is a solution.

    Noble in my opinion but their piety often clouds their judgement. Suppression of religion is something that needs to serve rather than undermine whether it be an individual's vision or the needs of an entire society. In my view the usefulness of state atheism extends no further than its ability to allow to flourish that state religion would choke. Which in the most cases is the freedom of idea discussion, debate and rational discourse.
