Because a belief one's position is right because it's God's position isn't rational. It's faith
****

How do you know it's just faith?


Leaders like President Ahmadenijad feel that God is on his side, and not America's. Obama proposed talks with such a fellow. My President is too bright, I believe to engage in meaningless discussions with someone who thinks God is on his side and not ours.

Also, I think judgemental Americans should not insult people in other regions who may well believe, and actually do believe that God is on their side. It's part of the reason "they hate us" and we shouldnt' be so "black and white".

But then we'll have Felix out there with his t-shirt that reads "these colors don't run" telling people in other lands that they are irrational based on their religious beliefs.

Ugly Americans. No wonder.
