Oh please!

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Slappy (United States), Dec 11, 2002 at 11:07

Democracy will collapse? Democracy has been with us in one form are another since before Christ and before Muhammed. It keeps coming back for the downtrodden to use as a tool to fight religious zealotry and thus will it always be so. Religion is on the outs as a politcal arena because it's divisive.

Democracy is antethema to ignorance and its the future of humanity, not Islam or any other religion.
