In Support of Theocracy --
A highly religious people seek the return of religious authority to political power. The government opposes this, claiming that religion and politics should be separate. Where is this?

I've always found Tibet interesting for its interplay of religion and politics. We have Buddhists, seeming practitioners of a peaceful religion, who killed civilians, those farmers who the Chinese moved into the region as a colonial foothold. We have a deposed theocracy which has the sympathy of the (usually) secular west.
