    You may not want to think of Christianity as political, but let me ask you...

    Why are most anti-abortion voters Catholic and/or Evangelical?
    Why did religious congregations mobilize their membership against gay marriage and/or fund attack ads making all sorts of ridiculous claims about gays?

    In my opinion, the best thing we could do is revoke the tax exempt status for all religious organizations and let them freely embrace the fact that they are money-making entertainment-providing political action committees.
    Why are most pro abortion people Christian? Why do some churches welcome gays? Why are some churches apolitical?

    It's not christianity that is political, it's some christians. It's a significant difference.

    Evidence?

    There are rare exceptions to every rule.

    Why are some churches apolitical?
    see above.

    Your argument works something like that, to show the obvious fallacy. Anne Coulter is an asshole. Ann Coulter is right wing. Therefore right wingers are assholes. For you, since some Christians are political, therefore Christianity is political.

    I disagree with this one statement. I know how it would impact our Buddhist community negatively. It is unfair to punish all religious groups for the abuses of some.

    No. I've given you multiple examples.

    Political candidates for higher office must be Christian.
    Many Christian churches and organizations have a political agenda.
    Many Christian organizations have influenced political issues for religious reasons.
    Thus, Christianity is political.

    Can you imagine a Muslim trying to get elected POTUS? Do we have any politicians in the US that have successfully run for office who are Muslim?

    Is Christianity - All of Christianity, not just any political movement within it - a political movement?
    it certainly is, and has been since inception.

    Political candidates for higher office must have a certain amount of charisma. Therefore charisma is political. See how stupid that sounds?

    Many Christian churches and organizations do not have a political agenda.

    Your argument fails, and fails hard.
