in response to reader comment: LETS GET REAL, ITS NOT THE RELIGIONS BUT PEOPLE

Well, If the people who crashed 4 planes on American land marks to kill inocent people decleared it a "holy war" than of course reliogion and his faith does matter, also remember that the Palestinians and Jews have been going at it all for "religious" beliefs. No one is saying that Muslims are the only violent religion, but lets be "realistic" the only religion that has the common reputation to blow themselves up along with inocent people are these radical islamists. when that stops then we will say that muslims are like every other religions out there.

Yes we can all share the same world, but let's face it there are some of us that we still depend on humans for peace and solutions to our problems when we should have more faith in God and that we are here in this world just temporarely, untill then we should be focusing on good moral values in life instead of finances, 401k's, stocks etc. We are the only ones responsible for the quality of life we have not presidents or governments or even a specific religion. Christopher Reeves "Superman" was asked when he was parapalegic whether he believed if there was a God or not? his answer was" i dont know if there is a God, but we might as well live as if there is a God" he said it because he had seen how humans lived out of control, and that at least the bible would be the perfect book to be guided by.

Although i wish that Obama our to be president, didn't have all these suspicious ties and backgrounds, my job is to get closer to God and put the future of this country and the president in my prayers.
