    It seems a great many Christian nations have flourishing democracies.

    Precisely because they maintain secular institutions, rather than an all-encompassing religious doctrine that prescribes all legal and social behavior.

    I do hope you see the difference.

    None of them are a great fit but Islam has no church and state, only God and that you can't vote on.

    interesting

    being a conservative isnt an excuse to start such threads l think

    there are lots of smart cons around

    they must know not everything would turn to a nightmare in many ME countries if the west didnt support or encourage any fake spring
