in response to reader comment: Take your own advice

...with much of what you say. I am deeply incensed with my own nation's failings - the industrial plunderings, and whole lot else. This is something I have work considerably on in my own country. I continually write letters to editor of my newspapersd and news magazines pointing out our country's many failures and challenge people to live the life our constitution espouses and the Christian God calls us to. You won't find me a big cheerleader for my own nation other than its (so far - deteriorating fast) freedoms to learn, worship, and express ourselves openly - for every citizen.

When I hear someone from your nation attacking Christians as mercilessly as they do with full complicity from your military, police, and "justice" system, I have to comment when you assail other religions for what you are guilty of. If this is something you actively fight against personally, then my hat is off to you. But, I doubt that you do that.

I hate hypocrisy no matter who I find guilty of it and that includes my own nation or even those who claim to be Christian but only give it lip service. That's what many of the people of your nation do with your own laws. Where Christians are concerned, even your own law is thrown out and your citizens do very little about it.

Islam is a wrath far more dangerous than any of the failings of our respective nations.
