Have to agree with you.<quoted text>
In what sense specifically?
I think it has been used, either as a reason or at least a justification, in the past throughout history
Although I tend to see a lot of it as more of a political movement disguised as a religious one a lot of times too
For example, the IRA.
In America I think there is very little religious oppression. If anything, a lot of laws in recent times have favored the secular.
Could an argument be made that some people in politics are motivated in part by their religion to favor things that could be considered oppression? Perhaps. Although I also am very skeptical those same people would do anything different even if religion was not in the equation
I don't see much in the way or organized religious oppression. By which I mean no religion in the U.S. has some sort of official agenda to oppress anyone. Although I think there are individuals that use the pulpit so-to-speak to try to advance certain agendas. But I don't think that is the norm, which is why it normally makes the news
Why don't you tell me exactly some of the things you would use as an example and where and then I can respond more specifically
The candidacy and defeat of Romney supports a dramatic shift in the roe of religion in USA politics.
