Fortunately for us...

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: denying history

You can argue that sort of thing all you want. But the reality is the west is a secular state now and no one links that to Christianity. You are ignoring a lot of national, economic and racial issues.

Do you really think Britain battled for France for world dominance because of Christianity. Or Germany invaded France during world war two because they were catholic? Persides, Turkey allied with Germany in world war one.

Did Japan bomb pearl harbour and invade China because they were Shinto Budhists? I really don't think so.

Did the Ottoman empire conquer the balkans and the arab world because of Islam. I remain skeptical. Even if they did conquer in the name of god to make them selves feel more secure.
