Optimists abound!

Anyone who believes that Islam can have democracy is only kidding themselves. Democracy, as we know it today, is a creature of Christian heritage. All the rights liberties freedoms etc etc infrastructure was typically born and codified in the Magna Carta. For us to assume they want that or understand that is pure hogwash. Anything Christian is antithetical to Islam.

Democracy means much much more than one man one vote!

Yes! A country’s government FOLLOWS its religion. A country with a tyrannical, unmerciful dictator for a God, and a people with no internal self government, will have tyrants and dictators for their government form. An attempt to militarily impose a republican form of government on a country that is Islam is a waste of lives, money and time.

Our country is Christian because its form is Christian. The three unique aspects all written into our constitution:

Separation of Powers,
and Dual Form (Senate to represent the States and House to directly represent the people)

were unique in history. They were inspired straight from scripture as it was studied by Locke, Montesquieu and our Colonial Founding Fathers. No other country has had all three of those unique characteristics, although other Western Christian nations have had 2 of the 3, or in a very few cases had three but in not as clear cut a form. People who argue that our country is not a Christian nation because either
1) our people are not all Christians, or
2), not all the founding fathers were Christians (most of them were), are missing the point.

We have a Biblical FORM of government, and this form only works if most of the people are Christian and practice self government, honor and obey God and have a conscience that causes them to practice internal self control.

I learned these principles in a wonderful online course that I’m taking with my daughter:
