Tomas de Torquemada? A true believer who thought he was going G-d’s work or a self serving anti-Semitic power hungry sadist?
Good poll question.
When and where has it ever been a good thing to marry a religion to government?
Great question. Modern state Israel. Both good and bad have come from it but it is a Jewish State.
I support the idea of Israel. It is an anomaly probably constrained by its surrounding neighbors.
I'm sure you know the history of Jewish kings after the Hebrews abandoned rule of God through the prophets and Judges in favour of being like the other nations--first Assyria and then Babylon.
