Government/History/Religion question: is there a Latin phrase for a doctrine of belief in secular government (vs. theocracy or other religious governments) amongst a plurality of beliefs?

I was in a rather lively discussion with someone online, and he mentioned that he suspected that I believed in a secular government and amidst a pluralistic society. He even had a Latin phrase for it - but the forum where we had the discussion is no longer in existence. If it helps, we were having a discussion about how it is possible to be a Christian libertarian (as I am), be fully socially conservative in regards to gay marriage, taxation, abortion etc but still hold completely Libertarian beliefs in regards to regulation (or in my case, the lack thereof) of these things.
