Take “God” Out of Politics

I could care less for the religious views of people I meet. As long as they’re polite enough to keep it to themselves, I’ll take them at face value. Religion is a personal matter; it belongs at home, no one’s business but your own. Sorting out matters of faith is complicated; something as individual as each of us. In a perfect world it wouldn’t be an issue.

Our world is far from perfect. Religion fuels an ever widening gap that threatens to take us all down. It seems history has taught us nothing. For all our science and technology, mankind is no different than 1000 years ago. Scarier still – we seem to be walking backwards.

Fundamentalist Christian ideology creeping into the norm faster than Islamic Jihad. I can’t believe we’re debating abortion again, blaming Godless upbringings for pulling the trigger at mass shootings, or sentencing homosexuals to burn in hell.

I have a suggestion – a simple, logical place to stop this madness. At the very least – a baby step towards common sense. I’m going to single out America because like it or not America still packs some weight. America is fighting tooth and nail to preserve their second amendment “right to bear arms” . The founding fathers were adamant about the “separation of church and state” Lets fight just as hard for that principle.

I propose that any elected official be forbidden to use God or the Bible as a defence for their position. Further more – God would not be allowed mention in speeches under any circumstances. “God” has no business in politics.

    • I didn’t know that, but am not surprised. The founding fathers were adamant about a country built on freedom of religion, and a separate church and state. I suspect they are all rolling over in their graves.

  1. Granted, religion does not belong in politics, but if we had more politicians thinking of God (no matter what the name) instead of greed and/or power and then weed out the idiots – we’d be a lot better off.

    • You nailed it on the head.I have the up most respect for a person’s faith, I just happen to believe that matters of God and faith belong at home.God/faith , whatever you call it are nobodies business but your own. Who are any of us to say what others must believe.
