God has sent me here to be your elected official! Amen and Amen!

Religion and Politics......

Politics and Religion....

The two are supposed to be separated, at least it is supposed to be according to that little piece of old ass paper called the Constitution of the United States.

But..... There are SOME PEOPLE THAT TRY TO GET PAST THAT.

Why should religion and politics be separated?

Well let me see........

Politics is all about power. Why else would a multimillionaire give up the job that made him/her a multimillionaire, to take a job that pays them a yearly salary that is probably equal to the amount they spent on clothes? Power or the perceived power that politics brings is why people run for political office, and why they do or say anything to stay in political office.

Now on the other hand religion is supposed to be about peace love and hair-grease. Nothing matters except God. We are here to serve.The only power is his, not ours. We are simply here to obey and execute God's will for us. All honor and praise goes to him, not us.

So where are the two, (religion and politics) supposed to interconnect?

Aren't they completely opposite? At least it seems like they are to me.
So how in the hell would a Christian, Muslim, Scientologists, Jehovah's Witness or whatever is hot at the moment, want to get involved in something that goes against everything they are supposed to be?

And how can a politician claim to be (insert religion here) make decisions based on whatever the highest donor to their campaigns want, instead of taking into account the will of the people that voted for them based on their religion?


Politics and Religion should not be mentioned in the same sentence.

But here we are halfway through 2010, seeing judges that are VOTED onto the bench, which makes them POLITICIANS more than JUDGES or CHRISTIANS, trying to use their positions to enact laws that benefit their religious views.

Where is the justice in that?

Isn't Justice supposed to be blind?

What would Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, or the alien that the Scientologists believe in, do?

Would they approve of this mess?

I bet if you asked the Politician masquerading as a (insert religion here) or the (Insert Religion here) posing as a politician; the answer would be they are only acting on their God's orders.

You see, their God talks to them every night via Skyppe.

Good post,
I suspect some politicians claim to have religious values just to get votes and could really care less about the actual religion. For them, church is just a place to gather and get connected with people who can help their career. The actual values of the religion are an afterthought.

For others, they really think they speak for God. Pat Robertson is someone who comes to mind when you talk about mixing politics and religion. Needless to say, men like him are a danger to democracy.

religion is terrible.... and honestly I think it's become more of a fad.... if you say you're a Christian--- most of America will love you more---even if you act like an idiot and don't do very godly things.... you are right religion and politics shouldn't mix--- but it always does.

Politicians will do whatever it takes to obtain and retain their power, and in the US, it usually requires calling yourself a "Christian" even if you do not follow any of the tenets of Christianity.
A lot of religious figures (especially the ones who you see on TV, running mega churches, or on the lecture circuit, and often no more Christian than anyone else. They simply see a niche that they can fill to be in control. People who are truly religious are humble, and would not be in the public eye. They also would not be legislating how other people should run their lives, IMHO. Most of the people in this country who call themselves "religious" only believe in religion when it can get them ahead.

Ditto on the nice post. I have always had issues with politicians that get their personal ideas wrapped up in their political agendas. While personally I believe something doesn't mean it's right for anyone else. It's right for me and when it comes to my personal decision then I will go with it. Any other time I should be going with the people or with the option that allows them to make a decision for themselves.

This has always been a sore subject of mine.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most of the politicians out there that claim to have a strong faith in a higher power are completely full of shit. Sure there is supposed to be a separation of church and state; but most of the voters that go to the polls say that they both believe in a higher power and want their politicians to believe as well.

I would respect politicians more if they just came out and said that they didn't believe in God.

I believe that it was George Bernard Shaw who said..."My religion? Well my dear I am a millionaire, that is my religion"

The Bible tells us that "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." If thats true about a rich man, then how hard is it for a politician?!?
