Associating Christianity with George Bush is wrong. You can't blame the failures of a secualar state on Christianity. I concider christianity to be a minority religion in the west now.

But if you have that much of a problem with America. Concider the majority of the worlds christians in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Are they lining up to support the war in Iraq? I don't think so. But I bet a lot of Islamic militants use Bush as an excuse to kill christians in muslim nations.

But while we are on the topic of religion and conquest. Didn't mohammed conquer the middle east, north africa and spain in the name of god? Sounds a little like good old American manifest destiny to me.
