Guest post: Religion permeates the polity

Originally a comment by John Wasson on They’re making the law.

Religion permeates the polity: religion and the military; the unnerving “long conversation with a CIA official”; Prime Ministers Harper’s and Tony Blair’s statements about “God’s judgement” and “holy intervention” in political decisions; George W Bush’s declaration that Gog and Magog are at work in the mid-east; references to the Crusades …

Christian fascism is impervious to reason.

Of course this is not just in North America and Europe and not just Christianity: look at Thailand, India, Israel …

Religious belief is belief against (James P Carse, The Religious Case Against Belief).
