    To some extent, but mostly on the right. The gop is filled with far right wing Christians espousing positions that have nothing whatsoever to do with religion, becuase that is what their political party told them to think.

    Source(s): see anything on global warming, engaging in torture, killing civilians in other countries, etc. If you don't agree with what their political masters told them god wants ( none of these positions have the least bit of biblical backing) then you need to be tortured too or GTFO.

    Politics is older and more deep seated than religion. You can see power struggles in any of the social animals, like monkeys, chimps and wolves, which like human politics shift as individuals gain and lose sway within the group. Doubtless the earliest human societies had their own political struggles. Religion is more like an ideological offshoot of politics, if anything, another way of forming a cohesive group to achieve a particular end.

    People have been complaining about politics for thousands of years now, and so it's really nothing new. Both religion and politics will always be around.

    What nonsense!

    Sadly christians abuse politics for their own ends to the detrement of America and it's citizens!

    George W Bush started FIVE wars in less than eight years stating each time that it was his "God Given Duty” and in 2001 even called it a Crusade!

    Not his duty to the electors!

    Not his duty to America!

    Just his duty to keep slaughtering heathens for his god!
