7. Thats a great point about Turkey

 

Secularism had to be forced on it militarily by Ataturk in the 20s, but now its beginning to be eroded and Islamists are making gains.

Indonesia is a pretty bad example too. It has Sharia Law for one of its provinces with 5 million people and religious courts everywhere else. Its also not great for civil liberties, its rated only partly free by Freedom House.
