Turkey – more morally advanced than most April 29, 2007

Posted by Al in : politics , trackback

It’s not often that I’d ever write a tagline like that above. It’s not often that Turkey leads the field in anything these days, the Ottoman empire being long gone. However I have to applaud their stance on this issue, and I hope that more countries around the world start to follow their lead. 700,00 people have turned out to demonstrate against the Turkish government’s pro-Islamic leanings. They would prefer a non-religious government, which is something I believe in very strongly. I am totally behind them in this effort, and if they manage to make a difference, which we may have to wait until the next election to find out, then I will be a very happy man.
