Humour was his forte — his prose brims with satire, The Philippines — where 80 per cent of a population of over 100 million is Catholic — is the only place outside of the Vatican where divorce is outlawed.

the harassment of the children got even worse In other cases children were beaten up for refusing to take part in school-endorsed religious activities in public schools And in what is perhaps one of the worst cases in the last half-century a family in Little Axe Oklahoma who belonged to the Church of the Nazarene a Protestant Christian church had their house firebombed after they objected to school-supported religious activities favoring a different Protestant sect Why it can hurt religion The truth is school-sponsored Bible classes and Bible reading dont hurt only religious minorities and dissenters they can also hurt religion generally As Roger Williams (the founder of the current state of Rhode Island) noted more than 100 years before the founding of the United States government support and influence can corrupt religion even if it seeks to promote it In several of his most famous writings he wrote about the corrupting effect government can have on religion: "God requireth not a uniformity of religion to be enacted and enforced in any civil state; which enforced uniformity (sooner or later) is the greatest occasion of civil war ravishing of conscience persecution of Christ Jesus in his servants and of the hypocrisy and destruction of millions of souls" This history shows how such insistence on sectarian Bible teaching could lead a dominant religious group to discriminate and even act violently From my perspective as a law and religion scholar these situations do not seem to promote the values of loving ones neighbor and protecting those in harms way that a number of religions including Christianity espouse Frank S Ravitch is Professor of Law & Walter H Stowers Chair of Law and Religion at Michigan State University This article was originally published on The Conversation Read the original article Contact us at [email protected] IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsTwo Spanish tourists emerged unscathed from a Tunisian museum Thursday morning alongside the museum worker who helped hide them one day after gunmen opened fire on visitors in an attack that left at least 23 people dead The Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo confirmed to reporters in Spain on Thursday that the two tourists Juan Carlos Sanchez and Cristina Rubio were safe according to the Associated Press Rubio is four months pregnant At least 23 people were killed including the two gunmen and dozens were injured on Wednesday in the assault on the National Bardo Museum the worst terror attack in the country in years The museum employee helped hide the two tourists in an office during the attack AFP reports citing a representative of the Tunisian security forces All three people who were uninjured were taken to a hospital Thursday for medical tests "I thought my son was dead Now Im relieved" the employees mother told AFP Its still unclear how the three survivors were not found by security forces who spent the night searching for them following the attack [AFP] Witness Scenes From Tunisia Museum Attack Members of the Tunisian security services take up a position after gunmen reportedly took hostages near the country’s parliament outside the Bardo Museum in Tunis March 18 2015 Mohamed Messare—EPA Tunisian security forces secure the area after gunmen attacked the Bardo Museum in Tunis on March 18 2015 Fethi Belaid—AFP/Getty Images Tunisian security forces secure the area after gunmen attacked the Bardo Museum in Tunis on March 18 2015 Fethi Belaid—AFP/Getty Images Tourists and visitors from the Bardo Museum are evacuated in Tunis March 18 2015 Hassene Dridi—AP A victim arrives at the Charles Nicoles hospital March 18 2015 in Tunis Edel Ezine—AP A Tunisian security force helicopter flies over the site of an attack carried out by two gunmen at the Bardo Museum in Tunis on March 18 2015 Salah Habibi—AFP/Getty Images 1 of 6 Advertisement Write to Noah Rayman at [email protected] as alleged,"These people really had no idea about this news and it was hard to take these pictures.

to a nearby Microsoft Store on launch day to claim my pre-order I’d been waiting a long time for a 2-in-1 device that was powerful enough as a laptop comfortable enough to use as a tablet and still lighter than my other laptops The Surface Pro 2 seemed to fit the bill though it was more expensive than what I’d originally hoped to pay My impressions were mostly positive after 30 days with the Surface Pro 2 but I did have some issues particularly with the software Now that six months have passed and Microsoft has released a major update for Windows 81 I’m ready to re-evaluate: Still Digging the Hybrid Read enough Surface Pro 2 reviews and you might internalize this refrain: It’s too heavy as a tablet and too awkward as a laptop It’s an understandable complaint The Surface Pro 2 is trickier to balance on your knees and its 2-pound frame isn’t comfortable enough to hold up with one hand You must also get used to the idea that the Surface is foremost a device that you use in landscape mode But by forcing the Surface into those molds overlooks the ways that the hardware excels The integrated kickstand lets you use the tablet while laying in bed without holding it up with your hands or strapping on a separate stand and you can even fold the keyboard underneath for added stability Compared to larger touchscreen laptops the Surface’s compact size is easier to use on an airplane tray table and when it’s in your lap you don’t have to reach as far to touch the screen The Surface Pro 2’s design has a lot to offer but only if you can get beyond the preconceived notions of what a tablet or laptop should do Unexpected Annoyance: Booting Up Some Windows devices offer “Connected Standby” which lets them stay on Wi-Fi while sleeping and pull in updates from the Internet but the Surface Pro 2 isn’t one of them I didn’t think I’d be too inconvenienced by the few seconds it takes to wake the Surface from a sleep state but as the months have passed it has become a mental barrier when I’m reaching for a computing device Those extra seconds plus the time it takes to reestablish a Wi-Fi connection and reconnect to all my Internet services are just enough for me to reach for my smartphone or another tablet for quick hits of e-mail or Twitter saving the Surface for more intensive tasks The Trackpad Is No Longer Awful It’s funny how the mind works Before Microsoft added double tap-and-drag support to the Type Cover 2 and Touch Cover 2 last week I’d start feeling annoyed before I even tried to drag and drop anything Almost every time I’d run into problems while trying to hold down the trackpad’s tiny button with one hand and drag my finger around with the other My frustration was so hard-wired that it’s taken me a few days to stop dreading every text selection or drag-and-drop operation But it’s much better now Not all is right with the Type Cover 2 however Responsiveness to two-finger scrolling is still widly inconsistent from one app to the next and there’s still a dead zone as you scroll your fingers down from the top of the trackpad taking away from what is already a small surface to work with I use the touchscreen more often than I expected but not always because I want to Windows 81 Still Feels Unpolished (and It’s Not Always Microsoft’s Fault) Windows in its current state is a vast improvement over the version that shipped in 2012 but it’s still not living up to its potential Partly that’s because of third-party Windows Store apps The selection of high-quality apps is too small and the ones that do exist aren’t always up to par with other platforms (ahem MLBtv) And I’m sorely missing a Windows Store version of HipChat which if it existed would probably let me cut out the desktop completely in my daily work routine The operating system itself also introduces its own problems On some occasions a chunk of battery life has vanished for reasons unclear And when I’m watching a video on the desktop Windows doesn’t seem to understand that it should stay awake which means I can’t use Chromecast without switching to a separate power profile that never sleeps If I do that I have to make sure to switch back when I’m finished watching I shouldn’t have to think about it at all Oh and Google Chrome is still atrocious on the Surface Proper support for the tablet’s high-pixel density display is absent and one update earlier this year actually stopped the Type Cover 2 from scrolling properly Feeling Conflicted About a More Windowed Windows One of the major new features in the Windows 81 update is the ability to display Windows Store apps on the taskbar With this option enabled the taskbar doesn’t stay confined to the desktop It actually pops up on the Start screen and inside Windows Store apps when you move the cursor to the bottom of the screen I understand that this is one more step toward letting people stay out of the new interface entirely while still letting them enjoy new kinds of Windows apps This plan will be complete later this year with the restoration of the Start menu and a windowing system for apps But it also feels like a retreat from having the desktop as just one app among many — something you’d fall back to when modern apps weren’t enough As polarizing as that idea was I liked it For now these new features can be disabled and maybe it’ll stay that way but that’s beside the point Having all these options adds complexity to a system that should be getting simpler Do I launch Twitter through the taskbar on the bottom or the recent apps list on the right There’s no good reason for me to have to make that decision My Wife May Have Fallen for the Novelty I previously wrote that my wife was smitten with the Surface Pro 2 But over the last few months the things I’ve mentioned here have added up She gets annoyed by the erratic behavior of Chrome the dinky trackpad the occasional bugs and the smallness of desktop elements on the screen She’s less receptive to Windows Store apps than I am so her attempts at using touch on the desktop have led to frustration It’s a hassle to keep finding the stylus because the Surface Pro 2 offers no place to store it while the charging cable is plugged in She still uses the Surface for Office and enjoys whipping together flyers in Publisher with the touchscreen but for basic e-mail and Calendar tasks she often reaches for our Chromebook instead It Still Has Its Magic Moments Despite these criticisms I don’t regret the purchase The Surface Pro 2 still serves the purpose I had in mind from the start: It’s powerful and capable enough for my work (and even for some PC gaming) but lets me switch into consumption mode without pulling out a separate device Those times when I’m moving back and forth — for instance to
