President Obama wants a public debate on the danger of a religious war against all of Islam because of the hideous criminal actions of some under the banner of Islam. Like anything done in the US in the name of God, it is fraught with the dangers of partisan politics.
The behaviour of American politicians leaves no room for doubt over the necessity to talk ‘god’ in the electoral process.
Genuinely or otherwise, God must be invoked as often as possible.
‘He’, because gals that’s religious chauvinism for ya, is as important to a successful campaign as unquestioning support for guns and Israel.
