I find it strange that most people revere great men such as Jesus, Buddah and Mohamad and yet emulate the total opposite . The great religions of the world were built around these "impoverished" men. So why do people and cultures who worship these men embrace  "materialism" (do I dare say more the west than east)? Where does that come from?

There is a paradox and irony behind this.

Good question.

I often wonder if our 'christian right' has ever read the bible at all.

I would love to pose this question to Romney.

It could very well be a "double standard". What does that say about religion?

I'm surprised to see the lack of interest in this contradiction.

Can anyone explain?
