Of course MY country is the one with the right religion. We are the good guys! Bush even listened to God when he fought those evildoers in their caves with airplanes or whatever it was. If the American religion is not the right one, then how come God speaks to the president?
Exactly. U-S-A! U-S-A!

I'm pretty sure you're being ironic here so i'll answer it like that. Well this isn't really about the politics, the wars or anything else that religion touches. It's not about the good and bad side it's simply about the ridiculous idea of claiming you have the right religion when there are so many to choose from.

I like when people talk about him/she/it as if they speak from knowledge of what he/she/it knows.
I once heard somebody say that if you hear somebody talking about how humble they are they are not being very humble.
The God I know today is not the one I grew up with. Today my God is all powerful and all loving. He is not jealous nor vengeful!
My personal relationship with my higher power works for me and may not work for others yet I will respect others right to worship what and how others do.
I see the similarities in most religions but I prefer a spiritual relationship with my higher power whom I call God.

I think you meant sarcastic and yes it seems Americans only laugh at sarcasm, how ever on the topic of religion its fair to assume in 2000 years we will be worshiping something different...how do I know this ?

Good post...even with the pessimistic conclusion.

I think it's pretty sad, when people who claim to believe in the supreme being, never ask him his opinioin, just ask him, he will let you know, if you are of the right religion, if you have no courage to ask then you have not enough faith to ask. The arrogance of not even asking is what stumps most people, they think they know it all, I personally ask the supreme being differing questions on differing subjects on a regular basis, he can, does and will answer if you ask in faith believing the supreme being exists, believing he can hear you in real-time, don't believe me? try it out for yourself.
