Serious Religionists

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Jan 11, 2006 at 16:51

The Iranian Theocratic Dictators take their religion seriously. The 9/11/2001 Attack on the U.S. was a faith based initiative. Iran's leaders seek eternal bliss beyond the grave in heaven. They have faith that that goal will be facilitated by destroying all who do not share their view. This view is not limited to Islamists but shared by the vast majority of those who take religion seriously.

If an individual values his life on earth, the only life available to a human, he will recognize the mortal threat that religion and Islam in particular poses to one's life on earth. To be safe to live humans must live in a nation that recognizes every individual's right to his own life and protects every man from those who would initiate force against him for any reason including religious motivation. America is the only nation on earth where the government was founded on the principle of individual rights and is therefore the safest place for all humans including those who are religious.
