I think religion is BS, but it seems that over time, the greatest leaders, the kings, queens and the elite rich of today are all die hard religious nuts.  Did religion have a role in their power and success?  it seems that almost every super rich non jew person is a big church goer.  The same over history. what gives?

It is great way to control the masses. If you can control how people think, you control how they act .
Most religions cause people to feel guilty over sexy aka lustful thoughts.
If you can make someone feel guilty over their own natural , normal thoughts, you start to control how they think.

Decent people should try and act like they believe.  My grandpa use to sit through that shit every Sunday.  Simply because that's what good people do.

Most of those people just want to be seen in the church. Especially if they are out there selling shit with their name on it.

and now, he goes to church.

I'm religious but I would warn anybody from official affiliation with a religion unless it serves strategic purposes.

the irony, CDU stands for christ demokratische union, her party.

this communist profiteer is now christian and a democrat.

this is the kind of people who wouldve been in hitlers party too, only if the time was right

A lot of folks claim Christ and do nothing to represent him.

Mate..if you go against them you get "worked on". I was with a couple of people in "verwaltungsgericht Lüneburg" about 6 weeks ago and the Judge was really giving me dirty looks because we help people fight against the Nazi Authorities here. It´s so corrupt that the Courts work with these CDU Bastards. I am well known by them...lol

King Louis XVI of France was a staunch catholic.  The revolutionaries tried to get him to renounce his faith, and he would not.  It played a major role in his eventual death - beheaded by the revolutionaries.  Had he publicly renounced his faith they would have gone easier on him and probably let him live.

jesse ventura said it best; "religion is for the weak minded".

religion is often times confused with faith. it is better to have faith than follow a religion.

I think powerful people will do/say anything to achieve their goals.

It follows that if "religion is the opiate of the masses" and that a majority of people believe in one religion or the other...

..and you are trying to acheive power and/or wealth over these masses...

Then doesn't it make sense that one would profess to follow a certain religion in order to be accepted by the masses?

In short, I think powerful people say they are religious in order to get votes.

people talk about the masons, iluminati etc...all religious groups.  Most of the brits and french royalty had true blind faith.  I don't get it but they all seem to be staunch believers of God and all have success.  Almost all the Rich and Super poor are very religious and everyone in between are like Meh???

That is easy to answer...

The powerful know they need to embrace religion to control the masses. Period. They may or may not believe it themselves but they all know it is a tool.

Look at it this way. Take Islam... Suicide bombers every day, but the higher ups don't do it even they say it is the path to heaven and virgins. It is simply a tool to control the dopes.

Absolute brilliance can be found in a religious message, and such messages cannot be delivered in any other way.
