Hi, I find these posts about God and Christianity very interesting-- and I was just wondering if there are other faiths that share some soliarity with OWS? Here's what I mean by "share solidarity with OWS": http://adamaecompton.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/occupywallst-wwjd/

please reply with civilty - I dont mean to incite - these are my opinions

the same thing went wrong here as in the crusades, in Spain in 1492, in Saudi Arabia, in Iran. Religion trained children to be lemmings - and they grew up lemmings - begging to be told what to do - without reason or thinking. Some lemmings were taught to start mideval wars - the crusades - some were taught to burn Spanish Jews - some were taught to blow up buildings. Taught by religious and political and economic fanatics who know how to use the lemmings.

Today its the koch machine and the murdoch machine using the lemmings.

Politics and religions should not mix.

hey i was wondering, do you think it's really possible for politics and religion not to mix? in real life, i mean? i thought that marx was quite non-religious in his political views-- and even in a lot of his socialist/humanitarian views-- but something went quite wrong with that attempt at separating politic and religion. what are some other possibilities?

Well, certainly politics and religion are more separated in Canada than US. That would be a good starting point. The important thing is to have laws and a constitution that doesn't permit certain religions to have an advantage over others. It doesn't bother me if a politician has certain religious convictions, as long as he has no way to pass laws simply because of them. I think all religions are very dangerous and would love to live in a world without them, but that's obviously not realistic. But, look in US, even if the far right has a lot of power they were not able to pass creationism in school. That's a positive and motivating thing.
