Religion and Politics (ie Power)

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: OBAMA FOR A LASTING PEACE

Poltics and power are one and the same.

Right now, religious nations are gaining or maintaining power, secular ones (Canada, AU, EU ect.) are falling apart.

Many Asians are converting to Christianity, because they see what we don't: The inspired success of the Renaissance and Enlightenment from Christianity.

But hey, if you wanna get left behind, fine with me. Every other country wants Obama elected because he's the weakest of the three. Sorry, I don't buy the stereotypical big, strong black man who wants to invade Pakistan rhetoric.
