Is this the best site on the internet, or what?

Yes, secularism is a word. It is this state of affairs, that the people of Turkey have freedom of religion and there is no official Shari'a law in Turkey, that sets Turkey apart from the other traditionally Islamic countries. I mean, geez, they only legalized the practice of Shia Islam in Saudi Arabia; prior to that only Sunni Islam could be practiced. You can still get busted for conducting a Christian or Jewish service in Saudi Arabia; that's illegal. Someplace in Turkey, I forget where, there is a street where there's a mosque, a synagogue, and a church all next to each other, and all of the people who go to these houses of worship are friends. It's really cool. There are so many places in the world where that's unimaginable.
