    the fact that western society is more than just its religious component doesn't mean that Christianity failed. It means that Christianity has succeeded in its purpose of being a helpful element in the development of mankind.

    It is all the other religions in the world, which have oppressed their people and kept them back that have failed. Hinduism, islam, Buddhism, all religions that have taken too much space in the cultural life of a society, impeding it from growing and developing.
    LOL I like that. A big plus for Christianity in America is that it doesn't interfere with real life. We do as we please and confess our sins later.

    The answer: because religionists, like all Libbos only go after groups that aren't protected by political correctness. Hence, the stupidity of Liberalism, in general.

    It blows me away how rational thinking people can go along with political correctness.
    I think you got the wrong end of the stick, read the question again. It isn't applicable to religion as a whole. Most historic Muslim nations are still Muslim nations, albeit with different borders and names. Western society in general is abandoning it's traditional religion (Christianity), while others aren't.

    However, I think other religions might be relevant to the answer, specifically with regards to how they deal with apostasy. It's less tempting to turn your back on religion when you can be killed for doing so.
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    Do plagues count as diseases? If so: Egypt.

    The God that Christians believe in unleashed a plague on Egypt. Ten plagues actually, because once is just never enough when it comes to biological terrorism and ethnic cleansing.

    That same god ordered multiple massacres and ethnic cleansings and obliterated whole cities.

    Well, if the biblical source of the Egyptian plagues is to be believed, then the Christian God is at very least a direct source of disease. What is the source of a disease if not a disease itself?
