My comments to that:
- Europe has not been all that Christian for a long time now. It's a great mix of many beliefs.
- It's not a choice between "Christian" and "pagan". That's a false choice, like the one between, um, "intelligent design" and "divine creation" or however that nonsense goes.
- I don't know a single European who "hates Christians". What they don't like are fundamentalists from any religion, especially when the fundamentalism is used to wage war.
- I personally have strong doubts that Bush is really a Christian. I can't see that bubble-head being sincere about any devotion. I think that if the USA were, say, mostly a hindu country, a person like him would don the dress and lingo of hinduism to further his political career.
Here are the descriptions for three authentic candidates to their country's leadership:
- First one is associated with seedy politicians and consults astrologists. He's had two mistresses, smokes like a factory and downs 8 to 10 martinis a day.
- Second candidate has already gotten fired from two jobs. He sleeps until noon. In college, he used to smoke opium, and he downs a quarter liter of whisky every evening.
- Third candidate is a medal-awarded war hero. He's a vegetarian, supports legislation against animal cruelty and experimentation, firmly believes in family values, and is also an amateur artist. He barely drinks the occasional beer, and never had any extra-marital affair.
Now, which whould you vote for, based on that CV?
Take your time, think about it.
Now I'll tell you the names of these three persons.
Each once got elected as leader of a major country.
#1 : Franklin D. Roosevelt.
#2 : Winston Churchill.
#3 : Adolf Hitler.
