  •  for me, any theocratic rule (1+ / 0-)

    is not acceptable. one seems better than another because of our cultural bias, i would think.

    i'm a jew, but i would never ever accept the crap being pulled in Israel and I hate that somehow people think if we're Jews we must be the same as an Israeli... and they are confusing us with a country that politicizes religion in a very (to me) negative way. in fact, from what i've read, many of the Jews living there deplore the influence of theocrats and the immoral treatment of the palestinians ...

    and look, the old testament was a rough and tumble story and is the basis for much of the koran ... in fact, i'd say jews and muslims, in extremes, have a lot in common. and the protestants are as hardcore.

    •  I'm against any theocratic rule as well (0+ / 0-)

      The #1 theocratic danger to the US and the world is the Islamist movement, as far as I can see. I'm not saying that Christian Dominionism is small potatoes, but Islam is a larger and faster-growing problem, IMHO. The right-wing Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel are making life miserable for many Israelis and Palestinians, but they aren't trying to take over the US and Europe.
