"God under Howard" by Marion Maddox.I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about how religion influenses our life at a political level.Just a little quote from the book : "By most standards of religious freedom, whether the practice is mandatory or not is irrelevant - the point is that people are free to worship in the way they choose."
If you attribute all your problems in life to God, and everything what you achieve in life to prayers, then you deprive yourself of a merit and deny yourself a chance of finding true causes of your problems and improving your present life and lives of the people around you. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Discover true Bible http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/donald_morgan/inconsistencies.html

'Mum',

Yes, isn't it interesting? There are hypocrites out there who demand that Christian politicians should be excluded from allowing their beliefs to influence their decisions, but see no problem whatsoever with atheists, humanists and secularists allowing their beliefs to influence their decisions!

Just a little quote from the book : "By most standards of religious freedom, whether the practice is mandatory or not is irrelevant - the point is that people are free to worship in the way they choose."

And they do, Christian and non-Christian politicians alike

Cheers,

Ian
