TA — I don’t know what you’re blowing about, but a strong Orthodox control of the Middle East is anyday better than a Moslem controlled one...

I vigorously disagree, Cronos. Vigorously.

Moslem hegemony, wherever it is manifest, is the most violent, most oppressive, most retrograde religious force that ever emerged on the planet, and that by orders of magnitude.

While the totalitarian statists have shown brutality and senseless disregard for life on an almost unimaginable scale, with an almost religious zeal, the Moslems have surpassed even them, and they have been doing it for 1400 years.

Consider Moslem brutality, just for the month of May, taken from http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

Governance that secures the freedom of the Individual ala a 1st Amendment prohibition against state-established temporal punishments or burthens being imposed upon the Individual's relationship with their Creator is anyday better than EITHER of those.



Don't you agree?
