kishore mahbubani of singapore in Newsweek on asian secularism

nov 15th, 2006

there is a possibility that mahbubani is going against the tide of history. religion is going to be an increasing influence, i think.

however, the religious right in the US took it on the chin last week. from the total humiliation of ted haggard to the fact that karl rove's holy christist warriors didnt count for squat, this election has shown the hollowness in the claim that there is a permanent christist fundamentalist majority in the US.
