God's Warriors CNN
I don't know if anyone else is watching this mini series. Iíve watched the last 2 nights. Judaism on day 1, Islam last night and tonight is Christianity's turn.
Anyone that thinks there is no religious/Christian right or no threat from such a small group of Christian right wingnuts may want to view this episode. Iím sure it will be an eye opener for many. You may want to read the Bill of Rights before watching so you get the full impact of what can change for you and yours if they get to much power in the government.
I figure they should have shown Christianity second and then Islam. It would reinforce the idea of just how bad it can get when religion takes over or at the least, has way to much influence over a country and itís population.
9:00ET tonight and repeats later on as well. Not sure of the time of the repeat.
Amanpour does a descent job of bringing views from all sides of the tables and lets you decide if there's reason for concern.When those who believe in any of the available gods understand why they deny all other gods, they should come to understand why atheists lack a belief in theirs.

Took in the late show tonight.
One word. Disturbing
So many Christian groups, with obviously cultic indoctrination techniques being used.
Lots of extremist views. More than I had bargained for but had never viewed it going on. Religious Extremist overload....Ouch!
Islam didn't disturb me as much. Maybe it's the geography. Millions of Christians with divisive view points. All proclaiming to be true Christians. All having their version of the truth in their church and wishing it upon everyone in America.
Power, Control, Greed, Dominion over all. Your rights as they see fit.
Not quite all.
-Jimmy Carter seemed pretty sensible about his personal religion. Wanting to take the Southern Baptistís back to the roots and didnít like what they did with the role of women.
-Greg Boyd was pretty cool. Definitely more in touch with reality than 90% of the other religious organisations. He sees all the circumstances surrounding issues such as science and all that it reveals, abortion, and more.
-Some aspects of Evangelists I didn't know about. (A little bit on the positive side. Just a little.)
It's on again this weekend but keep your children away from the TV. Reed, Falwell, Scarboro, Haggy and a few other undesirable are shown in preacher mode periodically.When those who believe in any of the available gods understand why they deny all other gods, they should come to understand why atheists lack a belief in theirs.

More choice to choose religion these days and so many wars because of such.

It's like a big game of RISK - GODSTORM version.
Weinstein and Aslan on Military Fundamentalism and the Left Behind game to be sent to soldiersAmerican military and political officials must, at the very least, have the foresight not to promote crusade rhetoric in the midst of an already religion-tinged war. Many of our enemies in the Mideast already believe that the world is locked in a contest between Christianity and Islam. Why are our military officials validating this ludicrous claim with their own fiery religious rhetoric?
It's time to actively strip the so-called war on terror of its religious connotations, not add to them. Because religious wars are not just ugly, they are unwinnable. And despite what Operation Straight Up and its supporters in the Pentagon may think is taking place in Iraq, the Rapture is not a viable exit strategy.When those who believe in any of the available gods understand why they deny all other gods, they should come to understand why atheists lack a belief in theirs.
