|Do you think religion has a place in politics?
I am an atheist, but I found perfectly defensible to have religion to some degree involved in politics.
if you read the first ammendment it is about preventing the establishment of a state church (i.e. Church of England) not about preventing the practice of religion. Its an important part of everybody's makeup, and one that can't be legislated away.
No, absolutely not
No. I think it's irresponsible to bring religion into play when making decisions in politics, because the outcome will effect people of many races and religions.
No. Religion and politics mixed together gives rise to a deadly combo dangerous for a nation
It's hand in hand whether we like it or not.
Religion has a place in so far as building the character of a politician, but it should never be used in office. Religion is subjective so it can never be 'for the good' of all people.
Politics w/o Religion, is a tenant who squats on his Land Lord's property.
nope. in a country there can be many different religions and holding one side wouldnt be fair.
Absolutely. George Washington, in his Farewell Address, said that national morality and religious principle cannot be separated. Religion is as important to politics as the ideas it causes and inspires within the political arena. The wall of separation between church and state that Thomas Jefferson spoke and wrote about is now one the most perverted statements by the founding fathers that judicial activism has twisted and morphed beyond all reasonable recognition of the original intent.
