So, I'm currently writing an essay for the politics module of my degree, and would love some input from you guys.

My question is:

Does religion have a place in an increasingly heated political climate?



Of course, being a die-hard atheist I think it doesn't. But any opinions are welcome.

Religion is what drives people, gives them morals, direction, and a since of purpose. For a lot of people the only purpose of "politics" is to expand the dominance of their religious values. Asking whether or not it should is a pointless question. It does and always will as long as the majority of people believe in a religion.

Politicians represent the people (in much of the modern world). If the people are religious, the politicians will be too, and as a result they will be motivated in part by the interpretations of the values of their religions. Should doesn't matter.

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.
