    There is a very simple explanation as to why predominantly Muslim nations tend to be theocracies. They take that Islam shit seriously. And then some. And they have the numbers to impose it as law.

    And similarly, we have a fair number of Christian fundamentalists right here at home that would be eager to tear down the wall separating church and state and institute a Chriatian theocracy. The only thing stopping them is they don't have the numbers.

    Thank fucking GOD!

    Actually, only about half of all Muslim dominant countries have Islam as the official religion and/or Sharia as the basis for law. People tend to focus on the Middle East and forget about all the African, Asian, and former Soviet countries that are Muslim dominant.

    Because everyone knows that the the Founding Fathers were just like the fundamentalist Christians that are spread across the bible belt today. :cuckoo:

    Pretty damn good IF you toe the Christian party line / Pretty fucked up if you disagree.

    Ask any Christian trying to be free in a muslim theocracy...​

    On a side note, I don't think the numbers ARE there. Look at how Americans choose with the only vote that REALLY counts - their wallets.

    The porn industry.

    The liquor industry.

    Pharmaceuticals, both legal and illegal.

    Prostitution.

    Etc.

    On the other hand, look at all the money Americans do NOT want spent on the poor and less fortunate. If this were a Christian nation, there would be a whole lot less bitching when talk of health-care for the poor was brought up.

    How anyone can consider themselves to be a 'Christian Republican' is beyond me.

    Christian: Help those less fortunate and store your treasure in Heaven.

    Republican: I (or my daddy) earned it (stole it) fair and square. It's mine. Fuck 'em!

    What, are ya nuts?

    Never heard of Shriner's, St. Jude's, MDA or Indigent Care Trust Fund?

    Try Googling "medical charity organizations", and you'll see how "stingy" Americans are.

    The good news is that you are right. The bad news is that so am I. We live in a nation driven by greed and guilt, neither very 'Christian' values.
