Just for the record, I've read plenty of conservative literature. I've even read many of the Nazi-like ideas of current neo-cons.

I've also read a lot of good fiction, including the Bible, and parts of the Qur'an.

But I'm sure the illiterate 80 year old could tell you the major differences between the cultures and beliefs of Islamic Saudis and Evangelical Kansans.

Don't get me wrong, life experience is valuable, but without proper perspective and specific experiences, it is worthless.

I'm sure you'd agree that an 80 year old that has never left his one-bedroom home isn't very knowledgable.

tended to occur mostly in rampantly secularist nations, such as
Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and Communist China.

Not so in nations that have embraced the Judeo-Christian values of
personal dignity and freedom (such as the United States, for the most
part).

Let's not confuse the Judeo-Christian values of the United States with
the Islamic values of nations like Iran.
Phil. America is a SECULARIST nation.

Nazi Germany was filled with devout Christians.

Religion is the single most destructive myth ever propagated on the human race.
