    If some protestant individual feel that Catholicism suits him/her better, then he should do it, i guess. But I don't believe big groups of people would accept it, because they already built identity on Protestant churches and it is part of their culture now.
    But generally watched, it's all Christianity, and i don't understand why differences between churches are so important today when they are minor. Who actually care about it and why?

    And, as i said many times, faith and religion should be thing of soul and nothing else. I feel it wrong to say to someone in what he should believe or what to follow.

    I knew you'd have a good outlook, mymy I feel similar in that our religious/spiritual beliefs should be considered private and not up for other people's scrutiny. It is unfortunate that religion in general has left a bad taste in my mouth

    When writing, the American Protestantism was in my mind. I believe the Protestantism in Europe has remained closer to the roots and traditions of Christianity and it's up to Protestants of Europe whether they want a change or not.
    As to the American Protestantism, from what I've seen, there are things that just appall me as Christian, like "Christian" churches for gays and lesbians, or music and dances which make you feel like you have entered a night club, anyone can open a church according to his own understanding of the Bible which is against God's established church, because to be a pastor one should be ordained by older priests who were themselves ordained by the previous ones up to the ones who were ordained by the Apostles.

    Because there are a lot of Marxistic (NS), Countercultural ("Pagan" and other) and Machiavellian (Randian, "Conservative") people on this site and in the public in general (some Machiavellian/Neoconservative support for Christianity too).

    Zealots and proselytes need to force others into their beliefs because of their own frustrations.

    What does that have to do with my post? And to answer your peculiar question, no, I'd rather be living in a secular state free of religious dogmas, Middle Eastern or otherwise.

    All I asked is would you rather live under extreme Christianity or extreme Islam. You seem to have problems with addressing people without insulting them in some way.

    How did I insult you? I simply called your question peculiar, as it didn't relate to my post. Why so oversensitive?

    You didn't ask me whether I'd rather live under extreme Christianity or extreme Islam, though, you asked if I'd prefer living under Islam, but you never stated as opposed to what.

    In any case, I fail to see why not wanting to live in a dogmatic Christian nation where religion crosses over into politics, means I'd rather live in an Islamic state. It's a non-sequitor. I naturally want to see neither, and the absence of Christian totalitarianism in Europe doesn't pave the way for Islamic totalitarianism in Europe, if this was what you were hinting at. I find such a notion absurd.

    Well I don't know the answer? At least you can insult Christians with out them going completely ape shit (usually). The Christian life style is often laughed at in the USA. As for Muslims if you insult there prophet Muhammad they are after your head. I agree that religion should be kept out of politics.
