According to Tom Heneghan 2012, “People with no religious affiliation make up the third-largest global group in a new study of the size of the world’s faiths, placing after Christians and Muslims and just before Hindus.

The study, based on extensive data for the year 2010, also showed Islam and Hinduism are the faiths mostly likely to expand in the future while Jews have the weakest growth prospects.

It showed Christianity is the most evenly spread religion, present in all regions of the world, while Hinduism is the least global with 94 percent of its population in one country, India.

Overall, 84 percent of the world’s inhabitants, which it estimated at 6.9 billion, identify with a religion, according to the study entitled “The Global Religious Landscape” issued by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life on Tuesday.

U.S. General Warns Troops To Treat Dead With Dignity And Respect | CNN | (incl. Video)

#usmarines #afghanistan #peeing #desecration #dishonorable According to CNN Wire Staff 2012, “The deputy commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan ordered troops Friday to treat the corpses of slain insurgents and civilians with “appropriate dignity and respect.” The order follows a video that appears to show four U.S. Marines urinating on bodies, images that sparked swift condemnation from the United States and Afghanistan at a particularly crucial period in the U.S.-led war.
“We must treat the living and the dead with dignity and respect,” Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti said in the directive, which was published Friday on the website of the NATO-led force in Afghanistan. He said troops must follow the rules of armed conflict and “act honorably at all times.” Read More > http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/13/us/video-marines-urinating/index.html?hpt=wo_c2

“Faces of the Fallen” | Washington Post

‎”Faces of the Fallen” U.S. service members who died in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom http://wapo.st/iwLURJ My comment: God bless their souls. I clicked on at least three random members faces on the “Faces of the Fallen” list posted by the Washington Post and each of their profiles appears on the next page. Each one 22 years old, 24 years old and 22 years old respectively.

The Bush administration started the wars and the Obama administration continues it – based some truth, partial truth’s and lies.

These service men and women gave their lives for their country and us Americans. Show them some respect. These are the people who should be recognized and jubilant cheers, and praise should be given to them for sacrificing their lives for us. And all we can do in return for their sacrifice is act like crazed fools and celebrate the death of one man.

In my opinion Americans who celebrate and say derogatory remarks are basically just like the enemy. Cheering death, showing inner hatred, and ignorance. Not to mention it only incites those bad people to attempt to avenge his death. We need to expend our resources on getting the rest of our American service members home. Safely then act the jubilant fool for the living and the American service members that sacrificed their young lives for our freedom.
