    pat robertson and jerry falwel said the same thing a few years ago and every conservative in the country (including cal thomas, i'm sure) dismissed it by saying
    "nobody listens to those guys, anyway"
    even though they command the attention of MILLIONS of evangelicals and run MANY TV and RADIO stations

    every time some liberal or leftist says something terrible I immediately denounce it....

    as do many other liberals


    if only conservatives had the integrity and honor to do likewise

    I'd say his assessment is correct, though I think it's debateable whether the terrorists actually believe it. I think they simply say that to justify their political agenda.

    But the lack of God in our lives is exactly the problem with the nation.

    The sad truth is we have become a nation of ignorant, greedy, apathetic, gluttonous, imperialistic bullies.

    We are Rome and we will go the way of Rome.

    how's this any different than those who say "our foreign policy was partlly responsible for 9/11?"

    whcih part of the statement that american culture has " lost of a fear of God, immodesty, especially among women, materialism and much more." would you disagree with?

    avatar was right. this could be a bull shit reason for why they hate ue, but there is really nothing incorrect about that statement.
    if you 're on the left, you would hope america has lost the fear of god, and you couldn't argue we're not a materialist, immodest society.
    or could you?

    Rome fell after they became (forcibly became) a Christian empire. Is that what you mean?
