depends on the religion, wouldn't you say? i mean, if religion is what has caused the most murders and deaths, it can't also be a catalyst for peaceful law abiding behavior.
he was probably talking about christianity in france at his time in history. jesus' teaching about obeying the laws of the land in which you live, kinda influences christian behavior towards leaders. his teaching about not being jealous of those who have riches, also plays a part. in fact, seems to me he taught that great riches can actually be bad for you. solomon would likely agree.

The only people that will oppose these protests are rich people. People always say money doesnt make people bad but the worst of all people have no shortage of money. It is good that they protest but the whole country should protest for the step down of the formal Government and a rewrite of the constitution. We take our country back by storm and force. In a few days these protestors will be called violent and arrested for some trumped up charge. The free in freedom comes with a fee also.
