I believe that Religion and politics are inseparable (covalent bond), they are two manifestations of the same phenomenon, two sides of the same coin. They are both sets of ideals and beliefs about how the world works, how it ought to work, and how societies and individuals should behave to achieve this, inter-alia, religion is separated only by the inclusion of the supernatural deitic power.
Though, some people do believe that there is legitimate barrier between politics/government and religion because of been inculcated by the spurious "wall of separation" metaphor. But, how many times have you heard the rejoinder, "Religion and politics don't mix"?
Amid the din and rhetoric of the current lineup of tactical contests, I ask that you venture up to the strategic level and consider a primal issue that transcends all the political noise and you will see why politics is inseparable from religion.
It may not be in the dominion imperium and power of man to alienate the gift of liberty, but it will certainly take the power of men, guided by our Creator, to defend it. To that end, religion and politics are inseparable. Do you agree with me that politics and religion are inseparable?
