While on his recent visit to Indonesia, President Bush said that Islam and Democracy can co-exist.
Can any religion co-exist with democracy?
Religions do not support freedom, equality or privacy. Unless religion is constantly watched and controlled, it turns to repression and violence.
In all cases where people are free and equal, religion has been in opposition. Religion must be defeated to guarantee women the vote, black people equality, gays existance. Nothing free or decent comes out of religion.
In the United States, religion must be guarded or it will place repressive and inequal laws upon all the citizens, including those not of the religion placing the laws.
Islam cannot co-exist with democracy. Neither can any other religion, without the vigilance of a free people.
