    It was invented by pagan Greeks and has no place in a true Christ-like society.

    The very word reveals its satanic roots. "Demo" clearly comes from the same word as "demon" and "cracy" probably has to do with how crass and pagan it is, plus it just sounds like something evil, don't you think? Would you eat something if you knew that it had "cracy" in it? I sure wouldn't. It sounds nasty.

    That bastard Ishtar probably had something to do with it too.

        Good point, but I don't have time right now. Just pretend I posted a street map of Athens and drew a misshapen red pentagram over it in MS Paint. That's all the proof you need.

            I don't believe in humor. Humor is pagan. Especially sarcasm. Humor of the devil and all.

      So is Republicanism (representative democracy).

      Democracy and Republicanism is not the same thing as being a Democrat or a Republican party member, though.

    What type of government do you then suggest? I believe that an ideal Christian world would consist of a communist lifestyle. However, I do not believe that it should be a government mandate. Additionally, with the number of Christians that actually live this way being almost non-existent, I feel like democracy may be the next best bet.

    Lol, I was wondering what the hell this was all about and then I saw the category.  Pretty good one, because I was rolling my eyes considering on responding factually.

        We need some kind of decision-making process for determining if someone is democratic. Perhaps some kind of "yea or nay" system with everyone participating?

    Ishtar isn't a bastard! She's a ...hmm, are we allowed to use that word here?

    At any rate, democracy was invented by a bunch of guys who thought "voting by everyone" was a great idea, provided that "everyone" was defined as "male, owns land, not a slave, and belongs to one of the ten tribes (Buffet, Bush, Forbes...)." Yay for democracy!

    I don't think Ishtar would've been allowed in. 

    "Crass," though -- hoo boy yes. Have you ever read Aristophanes?

      Yes. Dustin Hoffman is one of the Four Horsemen, I'm sure of it.
