Democracy And Religion

Over the talk show the other day a discussion was going on about democracy and how wonderful it is, when a caller called claiming to have visited 2 dozen countries and how it was only Judea Christian nations that were capable of democracy.

I find that comment to be blinding stupid. Here is a list of non-Judea non-Christian countries :

  • India
  • Turkey
  • South Korea
  • Japan
  • Taiwan
  • South Africa

While they may not be perfect, democracy works in those coutries. Another example of imperfect democracy? United States of America.
