How can voting "yes" for a constitution that gives equal rights to women, protects minority groups (Christians etc) and bans fanatical religious parties be a bad thing? Religion has no place in politics and Morsi abused the power afforded to him by the Egyptian people when he systematically removed their rights and turned Egypt into an Islamist State. I hope to see Egypt prosper under a truly democratic secular government.

Religion is opium, and Islam is by far the worst of them as other religions do not interfere in the function of the society (NOW).

The Muslim Brothers are a reflection of a society believing that life now should be run the same way as in the Middle ages.

The Army in Turkey should bring down the terrorist Erdogan too.


Re ligion is essential for humanity. Without it, humans will destroy themselves out of despair and fear. Yes many wars are supposedly fought because of religion but in fact it is all because of economics. Follow the money to see trough.

The coup was financed by KSA and the US. KSA couldn't have acted without US approval. It is a repeat of the Pinochet era. Israel also has its hands in it. They are the three nations who prefer despots rather than democratically elected leaders.
