Mixing Politics and Religion


Why would anyone want to start a discussion about politics? I mean, seriously, when you go to a party and you see that hand waving, fanatically loud, opinionated person who’s captured a couple of innocents in a corner…well, you just don’t go there, right?

What about the family picnic and weird uncle Ray is doing his best Billy Graham impression, telling everyone about the need for Jesus, and “just as I am”, so you try to hide, right again? For the majority, we really don’t want to mix politics and religion into everyday conversation for just those reasons.

But what happens when politics becomes religion? Guys like Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin may never have started out thinking of themselves as Savior, but we know what eventually happened.
