The BBC has it here. To put it mildly, this is why church-state separation is a brilliant idea. This is a place where religion made people behave differently and caused a concrete problem.
To apologists: this is mainstream religion. You know how we can tell? Because this is the official state religion of a whole country of millions of people. It doesn't get much more mainstream than that! Sadly, I'm sure we can look forward to being told by people with their fingers in their ears - oddly, many of them from a different religion - that we secular types are focusing on religion at the margins.
