April 18, 2013- There is no political outfit for religion and no religious outfit for politics. And hence, religion and politics should keep their distinct and separate outfits for their disparate purpose in life. Because politics is the tool to approximate and organize better conditions of life and, religion is not.
Religion does not dwell in approximation; it is absolute in its tenet and teaching to promote what ought to be. This, I believe, is the foundation up on which the need to separate politics and religion is built. And any effort to rebuild this foundation by inserting religious scripture into a political discourse of the 21st century, therefore is, a hangover from centuries old inebriation of medieval discourse.
