it's about religion, not politics

define:politicize

cause (an activity or event) to become political in character.

But good luck with that theory anyway!




No, I made it about religion. And religion <> politics. Except to the bloody Midieval Christians, anyway. Which is a key aspect of the argument.

But anyway, de gustibus non disputandum est :)

The loss of most of the Eastern Roman Empire and the defeat of the Persian Empire by a religious-based empire at around the same time indicates this "exception" may not be quite as universal as you seem to believe.


Fair enough. I should have said something like "followers of dogmatic religions".

I'm greatly amused, by the way, that modern fundamentalist Christians and Muslims agree that Jesus will return for Armageddon. And just disagree about whose side he'll be on.
