Religion in someone's stand point is what makes up their values and beliefs. It is not involved in politics, but sometimes not as people would believe. I also disagree with Religion should be involved in politics. If you look at the time of old compared to now, you can truly and honesty say, religion in not involved.
Religion of the past does not run our government. It does not decide who lives or dies. It does not make rules for the people. Especially not like in the past when religion was the authority to the government.
It does though govern the moral and ethical decisions people make. Do I rip this guy off for a few hundred dollars, do I lie cheat or steal, do I live a life where abortion is accepted or not, do I live where people think there is a soul in everyone?
Religion does not govern the government. Religion governs those who wish it, because that is how some of you might define your values. Please don't say that religion is a deciding factor in this election or any other. It is religion that is a deciding factor in our lives and it is what defines some of us as a person. So what defines us as a person decides these elections not religion.
