Yeah so pheckin' what...fanaticism and zealotry is not an exclusively right-wing American concept you know...
How about Christian fundies wanting to preach ID in public schools...how is that any different?
You're partly right JTF, even though you're too inane to understand why.
As it seems you are incapable of following even the simplest of correllations put forth, I will explain my position further.
Religious fanaticism in all its forms are a blight upon this Earth. How can you condemn one, without condemning another, because it's happening in your own back yard, and/or is something you happen to agree with?
Wahhabism is certainly appalling to those of us who have known Western style freedoms, but so too are many of the "faith-based initiatives" that are being introduced in the US.
Enslavement of women? Perhaps, but need I remind you that this is their religious ideology, and that they believe that their way is the only way to true paradise. So it is to their religion they are enslaved, for if there was not that, they would not willingly remain in that condition. Christians are no less enslaved to their own traditions, and they've just been lucky that enslavement of women is not part of their doctrine.
Now here's the part that I agree with you on: the example I gave has distinct differences, in that Wahhabism has been around for centuries, and due to it's puritanical doctrine, and strict adherence to the tenets of the Quran, societally, things have not changed much since the 18th century, and nor will they without a massive blood-letting, which is maybe what Christians would like to see happen.
However, the push for intelligent design to be taught in the class rooms of America is a recent event, and will adversely affect society in that it children will be far more stupid for having learned this tripe.
Both though are examples of how damaging religious fundamentalism is to the societies where it is prevalent. Get it?
It seems that, in addition to all the other goals of globalisation, those that espouse the globalists ideals wish to transform this planet into a Christians only club, with absolutely no regard for those that do not embrace Christianity.
One religion to rule them all...
