    Re: Are Politics and Religion becoming one and the same?

    I have always believed that politics and religion are absolutely inseparable. If you truly believe your religion, it should reflect in your voting. For this reason, it is absolutely incomprehensible to me as to why a "Christian" would hold liberal political views. A Christian that believes in gay marriage, abortion, or socialistic policies is not a Christian at all. Period.

    Yet every study shows the more secular a nation the better it sticks with morality. Your just playing the "everyone picks on the poor christian majority" card here.



    Religion and politics have been entwined since well before Christianity. Most cultures were lead by religious leaders at some point.

    Now that's just stupid. The Bible doesn't mention ANY of those issues.

    I did not think you were. I would still like to see one of these studies. I would not even know what to google.

    So if you could?
