If people truly worship their political leaders and otherwise feel they should be treated as gods, even while admitting they didn't create the universe, why shouldn't that be regarded as a creator-less religion (especially if they feel the question of a universe creator is irrelevant)?
Can you give an example, here, of which people and which leaders you're talking about?[/QUOTE]
North Koreans and their leader cult maybe? but I don't think that's what he meant.
