  •  Running for office IS the difference (4+ / 0-)

    The entire point is, when someone decides to inflict their faith on other people, whether they do it through proselytizing... or through legislation.

    What's said or done inside a church really doesn't affect me.  It's what happens outside that I worry about.

    •  The ONLY acceptable "religion" (4+ / 0-)

      in the public sphere as far as I'm concerned is republicanism, the belief that a people has the right, ability and obligation to govern itself responsibly, with the interests of the community overriding the interests of powerful individuals and corporations. Any other belief system is for the private sphere, and should stay there. Beware of politicians who claim otherwise. They are either dimwitted lunatics or playing you for a sucker. Religion doesn't belong in politics, period.
