Why don't you keep your religion/secularism to yourself?

In a culture that constantly seems to seek to enforce the principle of "keep your personal religious beliefs private in public settings", there can only be one logical reaction, or at least one, "keep your opinions about reserving religious views from public to yourself, please. Thank you."

Many religious views cannot be strictly withheld from public discourse and remain consistent with their core values of public proclamation at the same time.

On the other hand, secularism is hypocritical in demanding the privatization of certain beliefs over others, while at the same time publicly seeking to proselytize for its secularist cause in the matter.

So the next time you hear "keep religion to yourself", you may justifiably reply with "and you, practice what you preach!"

Amen.
