in response to reader comment: Not all faith is bad

Idea of democracy pre dates christianty to the ancient greek. The romans employed a system of republic - but the most interesting implementation of democracy was by independent republics of India during 6th century BC.

Separation of church and state led to formation of Christianty - severe weaking of the religion. Trying to claim that Christianity had anything to do with democracy is a ridiculous ad far fetched assertion.
