Except that the US has no state religion. Some countries do. The US doesn't.

Right. Here's a test for you then. Name one U.S. President who has not been filmed & photographed in a church in the last 50 years. Those images are global & they go out everywhere. The impression is that the U.S. is predominantly Christian from a global perspective. The truth doesn't matter. It's all about perspectives.

Yep, could even replace "Church" with "Synagogue"!

Seriously though, the fact they like to be seen in church means nothing. As politicians, they lie, steal and murder and probably break all 10 commandments, that's what politicians do.
Same with the Saudi royals. In country they are the good defenders of the faith, but away from that environment they indulge in all the things that they would send others to jail for or, in this case, a head lopping and public display of the corpse as a warning to others.

In the same time that ISIS lopped the heads off 3 westerners, the Saudi's beheaded 70+, but where was the outrage, let alone the western reporting of it? They rub shoulders with all the western leaders and even the British royal brood. Money talks in those circles and hey, what's a bit of beheading of unruly peasants anyway?

Well at least they appear to be taking a break from beheading.

That's progress

But reserving judgement as it still might be a package deal.

The Los Zetas cartel has beheaded more people in much much more gruesome ways and therein no sea as border fence. These are our neighbors and their brutal more so than Isis yet the US turns many blind eyes.
