Response to Berlin Expat (Reply #12)

17. Welcome to DU. Now, on to the article. I see a people's fault, not religion's fault.

I do not think that religion had changed our politics, I think our politics had changed these religions. We became rich and have not used enough of that wealth to properly police our domestic enemies of our democracy which I see as our press being too close with those few who want to steal our wealth. And, these bad few have found an avenue of control in controlling what churches teach by using large donations. This is where the author's idea of fundamentalism evolves churches from teaching love and compassion to teaching that money is good and those who oppose the new teachings are bad.

Many here say that religion causes the problem. I say that they are pointing at something so as to avoid seeing the finger of blame pointing at themselves, because the problem is in ourselves.
