Although to the majority of Spaniards, democrats and rationals, they do not make lack argumentations in defense of the laicism, apparently, are a few intolerant ones that need that it remembers to them that the laicism is not antireligious, does not attack anybody but, on the contrary, defends the respect to the freedom of thought and of brings back to consciousness (without which, on the other hand, we would not be in democracy). I have always defended that the best way to assure intellectual independence is the search of information and the development of the critic and analysis capacity. And every day I report more than the ignorance is the best broth of culture for the injustice and the fanaticism. And the fanaticism is most uneven of the human servitudes, as well as, perhaps, the base on which the miseries of the humanity are sustained most of (wars, dictatorships, genocides, repressions, operation, hunger). In order to affirm something like certain, it is necessary it to have experimented or, at least, contrasted.

In the same way, to believe something, it comes from where it comes, has previously that to analyze it and to verify it with the reality. Without these simple premises science would not exist, nor the humanity would have evolved towards the rationality and, really, we would be still in Paleolithic Superior hunting mamuths, rubbing two woods to fire, and painting rays in the caves with pardon of the archaeologists. Jokes separate, this reflection comes to story than it seems, lately, a campaign against the laicism or, which is the same, against the human rights, the liberties and the democracy. And, speaking of Paleolithic, before certain sectors partner-monks and politicians (the bishops and the present off-center right), in Spain the laicism has very bad fame, which is not strange because from his media tribunes it is spoken very badly of him. It says that the lay ones are little less than herejes, blasphemous, or that is remote of God, which they are enemy of the believers, who are immoral, that attack the democracy and thousands and one barbarisms of this enjundia.
