Faith in democracy misguided

That in which so many people put their faith as "democracy" is actually the worldview derived from the doctrines of Christ and codified as a system of government in America's Declaration of Independence and Constitution -- especially the Bill of Rights.

These two documents recognize and guarantee the equality of rights -- especially the Rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness -- to all, regardless of race, national origin, socioeconomic status, political party, or non-genocidal, non-totalitarian "religion" (yes, I exclude intentionally Islam and every other fascist, murderous ideology, for the Constitution is not a suicide pact).

Of what value is "democracy" when the majority recognize they can vote to themselves the fruits of a prosperous minority's labor?

Even worse, when the majority demands shari'a and the Hell on Earth that it creates?

More from here, where a poster stumbles on a possible remedy for Islam in the West:
"Democracy doesn't lose every time
Someone metioned this earlier. However, with all of its imperfections, no one mentioned Turkey. When you take a closer look at what Ataturk had to do to establish democracy there, one can see a possible model for other countries in the middle east."
Democracy is only a tool used by [faithful] Muslims to institute Shari'a.

And Ataturk suppressed Islam by force and forbade its traditional political expression.

Are you implying we should do the same?
