Beware the politician that tries to use military force against a faith or an idea. Faith can no more be killed by force of arms, than the earth be stopped from revolving around the sun.

The only way to negate a faith is to expose those who follow it to other ideas and cultures, thereby allowing them to come to their own conclusions about that faith/idea and follow their own paths.

Politicians who seek to use force of arms merely strengthen the faith/idea which they attack, and demonstrate their own intellectual shortcomings.
