While Bush and the religious right repeat the idiot mantra that the terrorists "hate our freedoms", there's at least one thing extremist Islamic fundamentalists and extremist Christian fundamentalists can agree on: democracy is evil.
In the Islamic corner, we have:
Democracy is a Greek word meaning the rule of the people, which means that the people do what they see fit," the statement read. "This concept is considered apostasy and defies the belief in one God - Muslims' doctrine.
democracy could lead to un-Islamic laws being passed, such as permitting homosexual marriage, if the majority or people agreed to it.
And in the Christian corner, we have:
Democracy hypothetically had it's beginnings in certain city-states of ancient Greece in which the whole citizenry composed the legislature except women and servants. But democracy ultimately started with satan.
Well since everyone sins, and do many evil things, they shouldn't be allowed to make laws for themselves. They are only going to make sinful laws. Alas, in America, we see that to be very true. Look at all the abortion laws, anti-death penalty laws, gay "rights" laws, etc.
Jeez, maybe we can meet in the middle? Huh, fellas?
