Religious Extremist Dangers Face All Countries

By

Religious extremism is a danger that all countries face…

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” Seneca

In Egypt the President did not condemn the attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo. Rather he mainly criticized the release of the insensitive and clearly bigoted movie in the US. He had no problem in using religion to his own advantage, to invigorate his base. Religion is truly the last refuge of a scoundrel, and unfortunately Republicans are using religion as a tool in this election. I believe in God and I am a Christian, yet I do not want to live in a country that is ruled by theologians. At the end of the day it is the religious zealots who are the loudest and form the image of a country. That is a danger that all countries face, even the United States! Rick Santorum nearly won the Republican nomination; imagine living in an America in which he is dictating social policy…

May the four diplomats rest in peace…
