Religion equals love...doesn't it?
From Mark Kleiman, a post with a few links to articles showing how, too often, organized religion tends to organize hate fests more than it organizes festivals of tolerance and love.
And remember, it is the rightwing in America that gave bin Laden and Islamicists succor in the 1980s and into the 1990s. And it is the current rightwing in America who brought us chaos in Iraq that has played into the hands of al Queda...again.
Yet, all we hear on most talk shows from Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, and the other television and radio commentators is that the "left" hates America and the "left" supports--wittingly or not--al Queda. These people are screaming into a mirror.
