    Talking Should religion have any part in politics.

    What are your views, should it have any part at all?

    Because seeing what’s going on in the world today, some of these religious leaders that are running certain governments are just making matters worst. From Afghanistan, to the rest of the Middle East. Should a state such as Hellezbolloh even should have a state with in a state in Lebanon.

    All i see are these religious leaders having nothing but hatred, murder, and trying to spread their idiotic bull$hit a belief that only causes pain and destruction.

    If you want to start a subject like "Should religion have any part in Politics" you cannot only focus on one aspect. If you're going to acknowledge on faction you have to acknowledge the other. Like the Catholic's Church involvement in World War II, in slavery, it's tacit non-intervention during the holocaust, or Bush's Pro-Christian stances that prevent the legalisation of abortion or same-sex marriages etc.

    Personally, as much as people may advocate for the secularisation of Politics, it will always be linked to religion.

    Religion is politics
    Agitate until we create a stable society that benefits all our people.
    Instigate the nation until we remedy the injustices of society.
    Motivate our people to set a meaningful path for coming generations.
    Educate our people to free our minds and develop our consciousness

    That will never happen. People will always believe in a supreme being.

    In a perfect world, the answer would be no but that is juss not reality. The two will always be linked.

    I guess it depends on the form of gov't. Many middleastern countries have theocracies and thus religion and politics are one.


    Religion, to me, is very touchy. Nowadays you have so many Christian fundamentalists who (like many other groups in power) force their influence and beliefs on the masses. So much ish is done in the name of religion, that I wonder should religion have a place in society at all. It seems to be a force that separates, hindering people even. Its almost like, the principles/fundamental of religion only apply to its practioners, and to hell with everyone else. Killings, genocide, segragation, all in the name of religion by those same people who preach "love and kindess". Hell religion seems to be more ruthless than politics.
