Dear Leaders of the World,

Your states need to be entirely secular. Tolerate and protect religious diversity by all means, but your governments should have no official religion, nor should religious affiliation or ideas be involved in any way in the choosing of public officials.

Your laws should be entirely secular and not based on any faith tradition. No religious schools should be publicly funded, nor should religious groups be subsidized, even through tax exemptions.

Do this now and you will have peace. Continue to define your nations by religion, continue to rule with religious doctrine at the centre of your political ideology, continue to make religion the raison d'etre of your nations, and you will have endless hardship.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

It reminds me an awful lot of a renaissance society. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't renaissance kings and queens rule with religion at the forground of their politics?
