Reader comment on item: Q&A: Remaking a Religion
in response to reader comment: Dr. Whaler's secularism

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Feb 4, 2011 at 05:14

A peaceful, popular and often public adherence to forms of Christianity in Europe and America would support the value of individual rights and the value of the scientific culture (though it would argue rationally against the atheistic materialism that some equate with science), as it has in the past. This is because Christianity teaches us that each person is made in the image of God, and that we aught to love each individual as a reflection of the love of God in Christ.

USA as a single entity is reponsible for more death and misery after the 2 great world wars. This idea of peaceful and gentle christianty is pure fantasy. It does not exist.

Bush and Blair both catholics were religously motivated towards righteous war on Iraq. They both have given statement to that effect. The catholic pope was member of Hitler youth. West is rife with secularism and hardly anyone in Europe practises it.

So what the ... are you talking about?
