Every one of these statements is very controversial and in my opinion many have been proven to have negative effects rather then the positive effects mentioned here (such as item #1, thirty years of economic data has totally debunked this). However, I don't have the time to get into each on of them, so I'd just like to point out two particular statements. Item 17 says there will be no official state-run religion and people are welcome to practice whatever they want. And item 20 says that each day, kids at school will be forced (presumably by the state) to hear/say a prayer - effectively forcing religion down their throats. I wonder, would an Imam be allowed to say a prayer for Muslim children. Would a pagan priest be allowed?
