Well, that is not true. My god is not your god. Much as I've tried, I can't seem to have a religious experience, thus I left to conclude that people are just faking religion to 'fit in' or that they are delusional.
I have a copy of the Koran right here and would love to find the passage your make reference to. I have not been able to. The Koran, like all religious texts, is very obscure requiring divine wisdom or something puzzle out.
I also think this is normal correction and would have preferred the government stay out of it. Hundreds of local lending banks, which hold onto mortgages and such, have had no trouble. Only those whose business model is built on profit over relationship have had trouble. Let them fail. We don't want them.
It isn't clear to me why Obama is better financially. I don't like him for his financial savy. I like him because he doesn't want to push his religious views on me(which I believe are Christian). I dislike, to put it mildly, McCain/Palins views on the environment and energy.
Anyone can respond to a threat, millions of years of evolution have programmed humans to deal with it. I want someone who will eliminate the threat through world engagement and peace. None of this peace through superior firepower crap, Peace through PEACE. For all the religion our leader claim to have why can any of them Follow Christ's example. They are always caught up in American Pride. Pride isn't a virtue... Be humble. Be thankful. Be respectful.
