Outside the States I think you'd find that most people with any kind of religious commitment were opposed to that war.
Don't underestimate them.
When the London subway was bombed, members of the "Phelps Congregation" were resident in London and picketed within 24 hours to proclaim that it's "God's wrath against the Fags," and that it was "too bad there weren't more killed." They say they're doing it "for God."
Fundies only a bit less loony seem pretty widely dispersed, and deeply embedded in politics where they're not being recognized for what they are.
