    still doesn't have the scale of the religious wars of Europe and the Middle East. And those two are actually good examples of different ways of dealing with religious differences. In the Middle East the religions are ethnically linked and the differences are very clear, conflicts remain overt and the area continues to be volatile and unstable. In most of Europe religion has become a private and personal issue, it's bad manners in many places to ask about someone's faith, so differences are minimised in public and stability is the rule.

      There is a Big Difference. What I fear is that we will have to experience a real Religious War HERE before we can start to live by our Constitution's principles.   IMO, Some on the Right are openly agitating for just such a war.
