Secularism is a challenge to religion’s political power and privilege, not people of faith

Some Christians use the Christmas period to attack secularism for its challenge to their sense of entitlement. But Stephen Evans says the faithful have far more to fear from religious fanatics than secularists.
Buying a copy of the Christmas edition of the Radio Times, and marking a little star next to the shows we wanted to watch, was always a bit of a tradition in our house when I was a kid.
Now, with my own family, I decided this year to reinstate the tradition. But my experience was somewhat soured when I flicked through only to find the print equivalent of Thought for the Day – with not one, but three Thought for the Day regulars offering their Christmas thoughts.

The Christian ‘legal army’ in hundreds of court battles worldwide

Women's rights advocates say the US legal advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom is "exporting extreme ideologies worldwide" against sexual and reproductive rights. Claire Provost and Ella Milburn investigate.
The international wing of a controversial US Christian 'legal army' is involved in hundreds of court battles and advocacy projects around the world, including cases defending opponents of abortion and same-sex marriage, often using freedom of expression and religious freedom arguments.
ADF International, the global arm of US group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), has 580 "ongoing legal matters" in 51 countries, and an advocacy and operations budget of €3,754,822 (£3.3 million), according to its 2017 Annual Report, published last month.

"We are committed to shaping a world in which religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family are robustly protected and culturally embraced," says the report, with a goal to build "a powerful and strategic alliance that extends to every corner of the globe."

Religion and politics should not mix, says British pub

A new survey has found that a majority of people want religion kept out of politics and bishops to lose their automatic seats as of right in the House of Lords.
The YouGov poll for the Times questioned around 1,700 people about their views on politicians allowing their religious beliefs to influence their political decisions and whether Church of England bishops should retain their guaranteed seats in our legislature.

Sharia courts in some countries allow private divorces, including the “triple talaq” divorce, where a man can divorce a woman by saying “talaq” [divorce in Arabic] three times. The triple talaq is not mentioned in Islamic law or the Koran and most Islamic countries have banned the practice.

Sharia courts in some countries allow private divorces, including the “triple talaq” divorce, where a man can divorce a woman by saying “talaq” [divorce in Arabic] three times. The triple talaq is not mentioned in Islamic law or the Koran and most Islamic countries have banned the practice.
The case centred on a couple living in Germany who got married in Syria in 1999, DW reports. In 2013, the husband ended the marriage using the triple talaq method in a Sharia court in Latakia, Syria. The wife agreed to the divorce in writing, but later contested it in Germany, after the husband sought its recognition in a Munich court.
The court ruled the Rome III regulation applied, an EU regulation that dictates which law should be used in cross-border divorces.
“Where both spouses have dual nationality, the decisive factor is their effective nationality within the meaning of national law. At the time of the divorce at issue, their effective nationality was Syrian," the Munich court
