Liberals don't want to destroy religion, they just want to make it "better".
George W. Bush had "compassionate conservatism". John McCain had "national greatness conservatism". Barack Obama has Obamianity:
The Charter for Compassion project on the Internet at www.charterforcompassion.org springs from a "wish" granted this year to religious scholar Karen Armstrong at a premier Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) conference in California.Yes, that's right, the cutting edge of religous thought in America is yet another attempt to launch a Christianity 2.0 without a pope, a St. Paul, or a Satan.
"Tedizens" include Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin along with other Internet icons as well as celebrities such as Forest Whittaker and Cameron Diaz.
Wishes granted at TED envision ways to better the world and come with a promise that Tedizens will lend their clout and capabilities to making them come true.
Armstrong's wish is to combine universal principles of respect and compassion into a charter based on a "golden rule" she believes is at the core of every major religion.
