Mixed (up) Faiths

Reader comment on item: The Nation of Islam Discovers Scientology
in response to reader comment: Could Farrakhan's involvement with Scientology have any connection to Obama?

With much regret, I witness the decline of the western world. The culture and political environment that has been the seedbed that created wealth, freedom and joy for most of the world, is sinking back into a mystic theocracy. All the faith and prayers on earth could not stop a fart! As long as there are different faiths to clash, none become evil with power. When and if some work in a mutual aid form, they will gain more control and power. Anything Farrakhan is involved in is based on lies and ignorance! I wish someone could explain to that savage, that the brain is inside the skin and scull. Others need to learn that it is above the neck!

Faith is believing in what you have no proof of, or worse, believing against what can be proved!

If faith can move mountains, why did churches need to pay me to plow their snow?

Faith and collectivism are the 2 biggest forms of evil, that the lowest parts of our history can be blamed for. The sooner we understand this as a society, the quicker we can change direction toward advancements.
