   I had suggested that we halt political posts by general agreement.  However since you and your people seem to want it to continue - so be it.

"Your people"?  Oh, you did not just say that. 

Islam is a socio-political framework and judiciary system with a monotheistic, ...religious component.

This is also true of Christianity and Judaism, which is why both religions find it very easy to form theocracies.

Hinduism is a socio-political framework and judiciary system (currently subsumed under a British common law structure) with a polytheistic, …religious component.

It has formed theocracies in the past and will likely do so in the future. The Ancient Romans tolerated the theocratic religions of their conquered neighbors, but “new” religions, without a government component, they ruthlessly suppressed. While I love what Battlestar Galactica did with the monotheist threat, in reality you can’t trust any human to be peaceful. Just ask the Cylons. :)

Just to balance the argument. Last year we had at least one Atheist terrorist attack. Though the police claimed it was a dispute over a parking space, the killer, an avowed atheist, explicitly said he was tired of his victim’s proselytizing. This year we have Joseph A. Jakubowski sending an anti-religious manifesto to the Orange POTUS, stealing weapons, and scoping out a church. While the reports don’t actually specify Jakubowski’s beliefs the term “anti-religious” is a good hint.

In the voice of Yoda: Religion not make people violent; people make religions violent.
