Is this the TIME magazine sold in an overwhelmingly religious America? Yes.

1. Europe is secular: meanwhile Muslims affect British law !

2. What Reformation: Catholic trying to improve their market share

3. Obama's Govt Religion: If you want govt. involved in Religion, get ready for Sharia law.

4. Faith Healing turns fatal: Surprising? God has never healed an amputee yet Christians persist in their prayers.

4. Going to Chapel Sanctified Celibacy invites certain types of people and invites certain types of abuse. Why are folks still surprised. Sanctified people is a farce.

8. Americans Go Church Shopping -- Americans are shoppers, what do you expect? And Americans are becoming aware of the hype and decided if they are going to have hype, they want the best.


9. Baha'i: The state religion of Saudi Arabia was formed for the purpose of assasinating Muslim Mystics (Sufi). Baha'i have some of that trait. When you threaten clerics, you get attacked. Religion is often abused by the powerful. Those in power use whatever they can. Consumers beware.

10. Religious Runaway The Old Testament also states that apostates should be killed. Where is the surprise.-- Deut 13:1-11


Curious why you listed these top 10 without commentary.

Amazing that top 10 did not include the atrocities in many Islamic circles. I wager if is for fear of reprisal.

Sabio,

I simply listed them as Time's top stories. I didn't feel the need for commentary on my part. I do not feel that it is always necessary to give my view on something.

As far as the reasons these stories are listed and others were passed by... well your guess is as good as mine.
