In America? Most certainly.

Let me be clear...
I think religion is inherently political. Just go to the average church business meeting and you'll see what I mean...factions, politicking, lobbying.
Real faith, however, isn't political. It's deeply personal.
When I talk about Christianity, I am referring to the religious hierarchy and the religion itself, not the faith. Two separate things. That may help people to understand where I'm coming from.
"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
Wearing shoes is political.
