Israel, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are all conservative religious nations according most standards.

On the face of it, radical christians, radical jewish and radical muslims all hate each other or at least very severely disagree. But why is it that they all support each other politically????

Saudi Arabia and Pakistan just to name a few get weapons and military hardware from the U.S. Israel gets weapons from the U.S. also. Sunni muslim nations along with the U.S. fund and arm sunni extremist groups in Syria and Libya and Iraq. With one hand they are pointing they are pointing the finger at each other telling us that there is a war because of religious hatred, then with the other hand they are stroking each others cock.

Two words son.
Money. Power.

Religion is just a convenient tool. Money and power is what drives politics, not religion.

donkey punches for everyone.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

yes, money drives it all, but to most people they believe that these religions are fighting each other and to the people that believe that, it isn't about money.

Religion often takes a back-seat if it's detrimental to personal gain.

Henry VIII was an English monarchy at the back end of the middle ages. He was a Hell-fearing Catholic. It didn't stop him cutting all ties with the Vatican, closing all the Catholic monasteries, establishing the Church of England, and risking war with half of Europe.

All that was because the Pope refused to grant him an annulment from his current wife when he wanted to remarry (slightly spurred along by the opportunity of taking all the gold the Catholic church had in England).

For me, it's the perfect illustration of how much religion really matters in politics when personal gain is at stake.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
