    Or alternately you could try and justify your views, or alternate to that you can accept that it is a similar view and simply take it as a drawback, no political system is perfect

    IF they were the same, most of Washington would have been beheaded a long time ago!!

    Given that many states are trying to remove reproductive rights and kill Planned Parenthood (which spends the vast majority of its time providing healthcare to pregnant women who cannot afford their own, not just providing abortions), have tried to impose “Judeo-Christian standards” (a term used solely by Christians) on the populace) in the laws, have tried to make it easier for people to go to religious schools which only teach creationism rather than science, etc., etc., yes, these two groups have more in common than most would like to admit.
    I grew up in the South, where there were sects (and religious schools) that required women to wear full-length skirts and three-quarter length sleeves and forbade “mixed bathing” (that’s “swimming” to most people) not only to its students but to its staff members — even those who did not share the religious beliefs.
    How is that different, pray tell?

    Damn the Crusaders.

    The odds of everyone being wrong are very good.

    When the religion is more important than the God it worships…

    ^
    From the book of Matthew – 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
    ^
    In another section, we are told what ‘charity/love’ is.
    1 Corinthians 13:4.
    ^
    I’ve only read two chapters of the Quo’ran, but it is my understanding from conversations with Muslims that there are similar verses within that book as well.
    ^
    If you can’t do a thing in an honorable and ethical fashion, it should not be done. If you can’t do something in the name, and the exercise, of Love, it cannot be done in the name of the God of Abraham who is the God of Jews, Christians, & Muslims.

    At least atheists have an excuse for behaving like the men in the cartoon, but most of the atheists I know are more tolerant and compassionate than those who claim to be ‘believers.’
    Respectfully,

    The religions are different. But the right is still trying to impose their particular interpretation of Christianity on everyone through the law.

    Many years ago a poll was taken of religious leaders in this country with the surprising result that preachers/priests/rabis did not support religion in government. Their reason? They felt that if government got involved in religion, they would be forced into practices that were not compatible with their beliefs. Now…as for the radically, self-righteous religious, you may have to consider their need for religious freedom, but you do not have to respond their wants.

    There are so many parallels between the GOP’s Christian Right and the Muslim Brotherhood that a single panel can’t possibly cover them all. A graphic novel might, though.

    I find it odd that the muslims get a free pass on Obamacare because of there beliefs and the Christians are forced into it.

    And for the cartoon. This is why we are a Republic not a democracy. We democratically vote but the rule of law keeps that from happening. At least its supposed too.
