    BTW, it was just last week that Rush brought this up again and that's why I'm trying to figure out why he only uses China as an example to "prove" his point. He was pretty adamant about faith in God being absolutely needed in order to have freedom. That's why I'm testing different countries to see if his theory will hold up.

    Let's try Japan: I have yet to here any complaints about lack of freedom in Japan. And Japan has the following breakdown of religions: Shinto 83.9%, Buddhism 71.4%, Christianity 2%, Other 7.8%, (total exceeds 100% because many people belong to both Shintoism and Buddhism). https://www.bing.com/search?q=major+...9aad58e68c97cf

    "Shinto gods" are sacred spirits that take the form of things like rain, wind, or trees.

    "Buddha asked his disciples not to waste precious time pondering over things that cannot be proved, for example GOD. Buddhism is not an atheistic religion, but has strong views against the existence of GOD."

    Now that's funny. I not surprised that you believe in multiple gods. When you believe in magic anything is possible.

    Japan got their asses handed to them by America. And their government & freedoms aren't exactly the same as America but they have tried to emulate America after WW2 more than any other asian country that I know of.

    China is communist & persecutes their Christian population all the time. Perhaps not to the extent as Iran & the other islamic countries do but still very disturbing track record.

    You state that Japan is 100%+ religious, with a belief in some God(s). Even Christians have different opinions about God.

    Perhaps GOD wears many hats?

    No. Try again. The revolution was so disorganized, it’s amazing that we won.

    I am correct. You are not.

    The revolution was disorganized. All revolutions are. That is not the issue. We won, with French help.

    The revolution, itself, is irrelevant. Really, I do not expect you to understand. Nor does it matter to me.

    LMAO. That’s funny based on your lack of comprehension of the entire subject. There was nothing created by the DOI. It organized nothing.
