Only WE should have a Faith-Based Government?

So this administration is out there trying to convince the world that Iran should not have nuclear weapons because they are a religious fundamentalist theocratic government.

What exactly does statements like this say about this administration, the NeoCons, and the people who support them?

“Still, some Southern women remain stalwart supporters of the president and the Republican Party. At a watermelon festival in Chickamauga, in the mountains of northwest Georgia, substitute teacher Clydeen Tomanio said she remains committed to the party she's called home for 43 years.

"There are some people, and I'm one of them, that believe George Bush was placed where he is by the Lord," Tomanio said. "I don't care how he governs, I will support him. I'm a Republican through and through."”

Blind faith is a dangerous thing. Especially when the faith is in someone who so carelessly and knowingly endanger the safety of the entire world for profit and a secret crusade.

You can’t go around saying that the US can have a theocratic government because its based on the Christian faith and that you believe that’s the only one true faith. Whereas you can’t tolerate the Iran government because they don’t have the same faith-based government simply because you don’t like their faith.

Before you accuse me of being anything other than someone who believes and remembers what this country was created for (i.e, land free from a government of tyanny). I’m not sticking up for the Iran government either because I think it’s horrible to govern based on faith. No matter the faith. Faith which is created by men. Men who are corrupted in their own desire for power and control. Christianity and Islam are both equally guilty in terms of bringing war and misery to the world.

For all of you that believe that prayer is the answer. Guess what? It’s not.

It’s the problem.
