Oh, c'mon!Because your religion has had a very large impact on the world at large and in the western hemisphere in particular. Why is that so hard to understand? For like the 50th time, if our money said "in allah we trust," I'd be willing to bet these discussions would focus more on islam.
I don't buy that. Not for one second.
If that were true, you wouldn't waste your time here, you'd constantly petition the gov't for change.
