        would be vying to be the primary or the only sect to generate the doctrine of correctitude and consolidate their own doctrine of authority as the ONLY light, truth, way, yadda yadda yadda.

        And that's not even addressing the chasm that exists between Catholicism and Protestantism.

        And then there are other faiths to contend with. What do we do with the Jews, the Muslims, and Hindus and all the others? Do we force them to convert quickly (or else) or do we slowly choke them out by denying followers equal rights and access and protection under the laws of this land.

          the Crusades (including the destruction of the Eastern Roman Empire a.k.a. Byzantium) , and the wars between Catholics and Protestants as examples of why this is incredibly stupid. Why should the religious fundamentalists in our country (like the Domionists) learn from their own history when they have the True Faith(tm) to guide them to victory?

            see here folks, but idiots repeating history.
