Politics is a matter of laws and regulations that an entire population has to abide by regardless of their religious beliefs. Even within the 76% that consider themselves Christians they would not all agree on the same policies so why even base them of a single belief systems?

Maybe one of the most amazing things about religion is that. I feel that abortion, hard though it is, is unfortunately an imperfect solution to an imperfect world.

If we are cowards and do not have the courage to be servants of people - whatever the walk of life we are in, we may separate religion from politics. Because this is your right that first of first you choose a candidate. How does any society define itself as a distinct society? But religion is not that.
