Remus Cernea (Romanian pronunciation: /'remus 't͡ʃernæ/) is a Romanian activist, agnostic, former politician, and advocate for the separation of church and state. For instance, in 2004, the government of Romania planned the demolition of a park in order to make way for a Romanian Orthodox church, and Cernea launched a successful campaign to oppose the demolition.
Entering electoral politics, Remus was nominated as the candidate for the Green Party of Romania for the 2009 Presidential Election ., however later some Green Party members claimed he would "lead the Green Party under Satanist principles" and "turn the party into a homosexual one", so he left it some time afterwards and started his own party, the Green Movement. He ran for deputy of a district (though not as a Green Movement candidate) and won with 57,23% of the votes, serving from 2012 to 2016. In the Romanian Parliament, Cernea chose to swear on the Constitution rather than (as is usual) the Bible..
