Now, that’s a bit hypocritical. I’m not sure of his history specifically but his country has definitely done things that don’t jive with their teachings.
It’s still a valid question though, and I’ve posed it many times myself and never gotten an answer. Why is it that the group of people in the US claiming to be the most “faithful” happens to overlap almost entirely with the group supporting the invasion of Iraq and killing 10′s of 1000′s of innocent people? I’m pretty sure I know the answer, but I’d like to see how a conservative spins it. In the US religion has devolved, for some people, into a convenience product. People take the parts most convenient and benefitial to them, and forget the rest.
“It’s great, I show up at church on Sunday, I do my part. My kids are now protected from the evils of homosexuality and pre-marital sex. What? Well, yes, Suzy and I did have sex before marriage, but those were different times. Give a donation to the church’s anti-poverty fund? Well… I can’t this month. We’re getting that new 60 inch plasma TV delivered and the kids have been bugging me for those new Nike shoes. Maybe next month. How do I feel about the 10′s of 1000′s of civilians killed in Iraq? Well, it’s not great, but they should have thought before they all got together and sent the hijackers over for 9/11. Honey, where did I put the keys to the Hummer?”
