  •  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.
