Why don't Americans hold clergy in high regard?

There are 5 comments on the Reno Gazette-Journal story from Jul 28, 2013, titled Why don't Americans hold clergy in high regard?. In it, Reno Gazette-Journal reports that:

Just 37 percent of Americans think the clergy makes a big contribution to society, according to a Washington, D.C.-based Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life survey published July 11.

from Reno Gazette-Journal:

"There is no organized clergy structure in Islam. Instead, we have scholars ... Thus, I question the accuracy of this poll relative to Islam. Nevertheless, it is unfortunate that most Americans do not recognize the status of religious clergy. In my opinion, this can be attributed to two main factors: The first one is associated with the behavior of some clergy who might have deviated from their mission of educating their congregation and fighting evil in this world ..."

In islam, evil is anything not of islam, so muslim clerics fight "evil" whenever they disparage their religious competition, fund terrorism or advocate jihad.

And the claim that islam's clergy is disorganized by no means exempts them and their actions from this poll. In fact, islamic clerics often organize protests against anything they deem offensive to muslims, especially when that "offense" comes from Americans.

Your answer reflects you lack understanding of what you read.

Invention of the Wheel
Up till now, it is still a mystery as to who invented the wheel and when the wheel was invented. According to archaeologists, it was probably invented in around 8,000 B.C. in Asia. The oldest wheel known however, was discovered in Mesopotamia and probably dates back to 3,500 B.C.


The wheel is not Muslim nor Christian, but it is a good thing.

No it isn't, Tom; islam is unique in taking offense at everything and anything such that muslims in the US have become "professional" victims.

christians are offended by choclate statues of jesus and jews are offended by south park. your as unrealistic as your friends here. maybe because your so insecure in your beliefs that anyone who questions them is a threat.
