A brilliant observation sir. It is amazing how quickly those in power forego the dictates of their supposed religious beliefs when it seems convenient for them to do so. Our history is rife with such examples. This seems to demonstrate the hypocrisy of all the lies beneath the facade of religion that men wrap around themselves for the sake of power. I salute you SIR.
