Mike,

>>>"conservative Christians in league with hard-line Islamic governments"

If you tend to separate what you consider into large mental blocks, chances are you aren't exactly a deep thinker. Sounds redundant, but bear with me.

If you're happy with where you are in life, and if you have arrived at this position through something more than sheer dumb luck, then you might equate your success with evidence for your ability to maneuver through the system within which you arrived at this very happiness.

Now, if you're happy with where you are in life, and you also happen to be one of those people who separates what he considers into large, mental blocks, then you may perceive a change in the current system as a threat to your own happiness.

The few who enjoy the riches of these Islamic governments, and a good deal of Conservative Christians share two things: (1) they are in "happy" positions, and (2) they think in large mental blocks.

Of course, I might be oversimplifying the issue. I might just be thinking in my own large, mental blocks.

-LH
