In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Religion and the Liberal State

  (05 November 10)

The age of colonial imperialism is over: taking your laws somewhere else and imposing them on those already there and those who come thereafter is gone. More relevantly these days is the question of migrants asking that their home laws be applied in their new country of residence, for example sharia law among Turks in Germany, and other Muslims in Britain and France.

Stanley Fish has written an interesting piece in the New York Times "Religion and the Liberal State Once Again". We will see more and more of this debate I believe.
