Church and State

For the first time in a long time, most Americans -- on either side of the Republican/Democrat divide -- agree that the Church should stay out of politics.

Given the past 8 years of the Bush administration, I can't imagine why. Might it have something to do with the vast incompetence of the most powerful man in the world to represent the Christian beliefs he professes with any type of clarity, consistency, fairness, decency, love and respect? Might it have to do something with the complete and utter disparity between loving your neighbour and invading their countries?

Yes, and might it also have something to do with not being able to complete a sentence in public addresses before invading a country irrelevant to the actual crime, on the basis of a completely fabricated term such as "the axis of evil," which was excused later on the grounds of incompetant counter-intelligence, by a government that won the vote on the religious right by manipulating the religious pro-life movement due to short-sightedness and plain gullibility, into voting nothing more than a war-president back into office?
