No. That's already been tried. Led to The Crusades, the Inquisition, witch hunts, and hundreds of years of violence across Europe.
Those who don't remember history are doomed to repeat it.
Those who remember history are doomed to say, "I told you so."

Why not move there?

The last time we combined church and state here, people were burned at the stake. The last time in Europe, people were tortured and killed. Read a damn history book. And the point of life is to enjoy being alive as per another post you made in there

Sounds great! So, how do we decide which church is "the" church?
12/26/2007 7:16:14 PM
Tried and failed many times. Besides? which church would be the one that's used?

Nice I've got my advice for my book on

The recipe for Fail.

Yeah! Just like in the middle east, where things work so well!

The constitution, founding fathers, ACLU and loyal Americans disagree.

Yeah and when the Fying Spagetti Monster is finally recognized as the one true god then it will be possible. Until then, nix.

You sound like a caring and patriotic person, could you please do me a favor and read the fucking constitution?

Jezebel's Evil Sister took the words right out of my mouth.

This is legend. Let's give this guy the Efficiency Award for all of 2007.

We've been there, done that. It was an unbelievable mess. But if you love feudalism, this would be the way to go.

A Mosque? A synagogue? Ooh! Ooh! We can have the Dalai Lama as head of state!

Rearrange the following to make a well-known (on FSTDT, at least) saying.
Bitch, Of, Tripoli, Treaty.

It once was. It was called the Dark Ages.

In that case, be consequent and don't critisise welfare so much.

nope, not going to work either way, religion can go to hell and stay there.

It has been said, it will be said..
Even after we're all dead
The crusades and dark ages went with that position
And who will ever forget the spanish inquisition?
Here's the answer to that crazy pitch
Look up the Treaty of Tripoli, Bitch!

It was actually the church that was the extension of government, at least, until humanity grew up a little.
