History has shown over and over again that Politics and Religion only delivers a highly explosive mixture. Let's take a look at the witch hunts. You could have someone eliminated by simply have that person convicted of witchcraft. Getting away with murder... in front of everybody.
How many wars have started using religion, look at the Crusades.
It's so easy to ab-use religion and for "religious" people to ab-use politicians. This is when things start to go wrong, the only thing they are concerned about are their OWN interests.
How many people have been abused in the name of Religion. Sects have come and gone, mass suicides in the name of Religion.
My father always taught me: Faith comes from the Heart. You can pray where ever you are, as long as it comes from the heart. In politics, he said, always vote for the smallest party as they are the ones who will do their best... until they're big.
Anyways, Religion and Politics should remain separate, never mixed.
