    I’d be interested in hearing the counter argument. Personally I think the quote inarguably true. If an institution is non-secular then it is beholden to some religious view. Since all religions are, by definition, mutually exclusive, there’s really no way for a non-secular institution to represent any interest besides the narrow ones of the particular sect embodied by that institution.
