It does?! I thought it said have an inquisition or a crusade!

Naw, IMO both are done for economic reasons and just use religion as a justification. Self serving greed trumps all.

Oh, you mean what they say to outsiders, not what that actually practice.

Its what people make of it. Religion isn't inherently good or bad, its a social construct designed by people and people can decide to use that to either wage war or help out other people.

There was a speech on the radio today from supporters of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline.

He kept chanting about allowing "The Market" to be free and "The Market" must prevail etc..it did sound like a bizarre religious chant.

Are we seeing the beginnings or a new religion? Should we just acknowledge it and start celebrating "Marketmass" instead of Christmas? It would be more honest.
