Whenever one takes an "oath of office" he pledges his life to one's duty.

Similarly, when one gives testimony he swears an oath. Oath-swearing is a religious act, giving due obeisance to a higher (divine or not) power.

What does secular mean?

Secular means "of the age," as opposed to eternal, which means "of all time." By extension it also means "not necessarily pertaining to religion," and '' concerning the here-and-now, not the hereafter."Secular can also mean non religious. For example secular funerals, or secular celebrations. :)It means 'worldly' as opposed to 'religious'. In the past, a Bishop or Cardinal often had secular power, being the ruler of a city or province, and at the same time religious power as the highest cleric and religious judge in that same area. Music can also either be religious ('as sung in church') or secular (written for entertainment). A 'secular' country is a country where State and religion are clearly separated and where religion does not in any way dictate State policy or practices.


What does secular mean and what makes turkey secular?

The idea of secular state was shaped into Turkish culture by Ataturk. A secular state is a concept of secularism, where a state or countryis neutral in matters of religion, supporting neither religion nor irreligion. A secular state also claims to treat all its citizens equally regardless of religion, and claims to avoid privileged treatment for a citizen from a particular religion/nonreligion over another. Secular states do not have a state religion or equivalent, although the absence of a state religion does not make a state secular. A minority of secular, communistnations have historically enforced the significance of the concept, state atheism, on their populations by way of religious censorship and persecution.
