in response to reader comment: Debanjan Banerjee lays a trap

Happy new year greetings.

The greatest enemy of all free countries is religious fundamentalism and the countries that refuse to acknowledge separation of church and state.

What do you exactly mean by this ? I am not at all sure. In your choice of greatest enemy you are essentially broadening the field.
