They were, for the most part, religious men but they knew that the differences in their religious beliefs would soon destroy the country and bring about another dictatorship if they didn't keep politics free of religion.
They want to make this another religous democracy which will then become another religous dictatorship.

 Juan Donoso Cortés [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
His theory of dictatorship and his critique of liberal democratic parliamentarianism significantly influenced the thinking of the twentieth century German conservative political theorist Carl Schmitt.
Revolution had to be met with counterrevolution, anarchy with dictatorship, freethinking with dogma, doubt with certainty, and discussion with decree.
The ultimate battle for Donoso was to be a quasi-Manichæan struggle between Catholicism and socialism, or Catholic civilization and philosophical civilization, two systems of belief in a combat to the death for the control of societies and souls.

 Maryam Rajavi - Importance of women Role in political leadership
The religious dictatorship ruling Iran, which has massacred 120,000 political opponents, is on the verge of obtaining nuclear arms.
Nuclear weapons in the hands of a violent dictatorship, whose terrorist tentacles have reached many parts of the world, including Buenos Aires, Paris, Berlin, Beirut, Riyadh, Manila, Istanbul and Baghdad and instilled fear and perpetrated atrocities in those countries, is quite dangerous.
The extensive presence of women in the anti-monarchic revolution in 1979, their heroic role in the confrontation with the clerical dictatorship, including their astounding resistance to torture in the regime’s prisons, and the invaluable role they have played in the organized Resistance, prove that women are the growing force of our times.

The first is a theocratic despotic dictatorship that executes gay men regularly for nothing more than being accused of being gay (or found kissing, or having sex).
The second is a despotic dictatorship that murders opponents and sends gay men to jail for 3 years.
The third is a Communist dictatorship that silences opponents and disallows dissent.

As you know, the history of Iran, the history of Iran in 19th Century was the history of a country under dictatorship but the constitutional movement in Iran, which was a modern constitution, ushered in a new state of politics.
Those who know, who have studied these societies, they know how the dictatorship and despotism stifles the psyche and the soul of individual, and it turns individual into a rebel because basically individual seeks freedom all the time, and under these kinds of conditions turns into hateful individual.
In fact, if you compare that dictatorship and the conditions prevailing at the Ottoman Empire with those prevailing in Nasaf's [ph] time, Nasaf's dictatorship was much milder than what was going on during the Ottoman Empire.

 'Pope Benedict XVI and the “Dictatorship of Relativism”' by Shlomo Sher - Get Underground ...
Pope Benedict XVI and the “Dictatorship of Relativism”
With all due respect, the claim that “It is a logical impossibility to argue soundly from a description of a state of affairs to a prescription or an evaluation of the rightness or wrongness of that state of affairs” has got to be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever read.
It seems to me there is a perfectly good example by which to judge any moral, religeous or political institution, although relativism may actually hold sway: by their own measure and their own rules.

 Objectivist Philosophy vs. Christian Religion
To remain in power, the dictatorship of the religious majority would ultimately need to censor, tax, fine, deport, imprison, kill, or, in general, do whatever it takes to silence its most vocal and influential secular antagonists.
The democratizing government would gain gradual support over time, and once the dictatorship of the religious masses becomes obvious for all to see, I doubt there would be much of a revolt—unless, of course, the typically pacifistic forces of secularism were willing to and capable of mounting a military offensive.
If there is to be freedom without bloodshed, I believe it will be due to the spread and influence of Objectivism and any other truly reason-based movements that can successfully outthink, outspeak and outmaneuver the religious powers that be.

Yes marrige is a religous institution but once it became binding under the law it can't be restricted to certain groups.
You can say you hate gays all you want but once you try and restrict a govermentally supported institution to them (sorry but that's what marrige is now) you've crossed a line and you're oppressing their rights.
If marrige was still religous you could keep them out but now you have to give them all the same rights and priveleges even if it's called a civil union.

While the American track record of avoiding imperialism and encouraging freedom is clear, the same cannot be said for the countries and institutions seeking to push the United States aside and take over Iraq for their own interests.
Ironically, Shiites, who were celebrating their religious freedom for the first time in a generation, were being told they should drive out the very country that had given them the opportunity to go to the holy city of Karbala.
Involving foreign countries, especially dictatorships and those with a weak tradition of democracy, will only make it more difficult for the Iraqi people to achieve the safety, health, prosperity and freedom that should be their birth right as a free and independent people.

To me a dictatorship, mixed with visions of divine responsibilities is probably the most horrendous type of repression possible.
Close to a quarter of a century of an autocratic government in Iran, bringing mass executions, murders, large-scale imprisonments, terror, oppression and corruption is the prime confirmation of this line of reasoning....
it's better than the dictatorships many people have to suffer - regardless of the fact that "suffering" the kuweiti or saudi-arab dictatorship is easy living (at least for the natives, that is).

 OPB :: OPB Radio: Morning Edition
When freedom of choice is negated we fall into the hands of a dictatorship, we are slowly heading in that direction with a republican executive branch, a republican supreme court, a republican senate, and a republican house.
Those who are "Christian" like to tell the story of the founding of this nation by religous people but not all those who came were "Christians" and many were fleeing religious prosecution and looking for a place to believe in a more individual way of "beliefs".
I'm afraid that the current administration is trying to make this country into a "my way or the highway" mentality and although they say they are for "freedom", it is only freedom to believe and perceive as they do.

But in January 1933, after two years of political turmoil, the president, Field Marshal von Hindenburg, appointed him as chancellor when Hitler deceived him with a promise to form a majority coalition government.
Instead, Hitler immediately abolished the constitutional guarantees of civil rights and established a dictatorship with a terrorist secret state police, the Gestapo.

Founded on the principle of velayat-e faqih (the absolute supremacy of clerical rule), the religious dictatorship ruling Iran resembles, generally speaking, the regimes of medieval Europe whose laws were rooted in religion.

 Sigtonoi - Tomorrow's leader... what?
Iraq is an ancient culture with highly educated, comparitively gender balanced society accustomed to secular rule.
Granted, they've had to deal with dictatorship for so long, but if there is any nation that stands a chance of truly embracing the concept of consentual rule without sacrificing Muslim identity, it's Iraq.
Granted, they'll never be the religous leader (the title held by Saudi Arabia), but given that they're literally neighbors, there's a huge opportunity for cooperation in forging a brighter future for everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

 Institute for the Secularisation of Islamic Society   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In a place where the pressure for Islamic theocracy is overriding, it is a bad idea to derail an existing secular dictatorship, without exterminating the islamic fanatic forces within and without, and try to establish secularism AND democracy anew.
Dictatorships are not good no matter what because they are the objective within themselvbes.
The best way to change a state to secularism is to force its dictators to implement such education system that favours secularism and democracy and once people are ready they would be able to take over their own state themselves and become a proper democracy.

 Kurt Lewin
The external motivators evolve form negative (to threat with harm and pain) to positive (to allure with wages, reward and social reinforcement).
It's the progressive evolution from dictatorship towards true participation and democracy, and in modern times the cyclic inter-reactive game of Right and Left.
With the collapse of traditional religous and political systems, which failed to keep up with quickly evolving technical and sociocultural progress, the need for a modern and practical spirituality emerges, and a tolerant but realistic idealism tends to replace the obsolete political discourse.

 Online NewsHour -- Nigeria in Transition: Recent Religious Tensions and Violence
Throughout recent decades, Nigeria has been plagued by religious and political conflict, and that violence has often undercut democratic governments and paved the way to chaos or military dictatorships.
The northern states of the sub-Saharan country are predominantly Muslim while the southern states are predominantly Christian, a situation that has in many ways made it more difficult for national leaders to maintain control.
In 1999, democratic reforms ended 15 years of military dictatorship and political leaders drafted a new constitution aimed at ending Nigeria's revolving-door history of attempted democratic rule followed by violence and military takeovers.
