    Mormons as well as confession and the Hail Maries against the Catholics.  Once you have a crowd that's all whooped up in a religious fervor it's not hard to throw out some dogmatic stinkbomb that'll get them fighting among themselves.

    That's what the petty noblemen used to trigger the Thirty Years' War.

      Luther and Calvin had caused a great deal of harm to the stability of Europe, but their teachings had been around for a century before the 30-Years' War happened. Religion was the justification, but the greed for power was the cause. Today's Dominionists are no different. They are about power and they preach their religion to fit their desires.

      The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.
