I should have added a comma there:

"But what is happening in the USA is not surprising because it results from a high degree of unchecked greed, and religious fanaticism."

Yes, I am referring to the current economic crisis. I personally see a relationship among unchecked greed and religious fanaticism but it was not my intention to establish a link.

By the way, with religious fanaticism I mean both (or all, if somebody comes with more) extremes. Also, it is the attitude of religion more than a particular religion itself, though the prevalent culture in the USA appears to be Christian. Pastor Don is about to give us a view on that in Journeys.
