Does a secular society exclude religion?

No. Does not “secular” basically mean “not religious” rather than “atheist”? A secular society has a place for everyone, from the most faithfully regigious (of any creed) to the most unreligious atheist.

A secular society is the one I want to live in.

Whether I believe in a Supreme Being of the Jewish, Christian, or Islamic faiths matters not, it is the human organization and interpretation of religion that I distrust. I certainly do not want someone else’s interpretation of religion to inform my government.

I agree with Roger Cohen. “Where Kennedy said he believed in a “president whose religious views are his own private affair, Romney pleged not to “separate us from our religious heritage.””
