religion and politics.

Looking at the world news I notice that the rise of religious parties are dividing people based on their religions. Also I notice the rise of a militant secularism that is as fanatical as any fundamentalist religion.

There are 2 main problems with religious and anti religious politics today. It undermines democracy and it ignores the real economic issues people face today.

Like the Christian Jimmy Carter I believe in the separation of church and state. And like the early German Social Democrats I believe that ones religious views are a private matter. As long as they don’t affect others I believe ones private moral views are ones own business.
