I think we need another subforum for religion. From what I've seen in this DC forum, people talk more about the bible, christianity, and religion than they do politics. Or is that just because this isn't an election year?

Then I think, due to the separation of church and state, it might need to be renamed. When I think of Washington D.C., I think of politics.

In part perhaps; I think it's also because of the perceived impact of the religious right in the last election, and the backlash to that...as evidenced here with several prominent posters.

Religion and politics are intertwined because of the nature of this Republican Administration and the basis upon which they came to power.

They have established their political ideology upon catering to a particular religous sect within this country (evangelical, fundamentalist Christianity).

Religion (at this point) is no longer seperate from politics and government (though it should be). That's one of the tremendous consequences of giving this administration a 2nd term in office.

It's also because the penultimate issue of politics over the last 4 years (Iraq War) is being avoided more an more by the RWers. Even those hawkish types like Jim (Vlad) have switched their position on the war publicly. It leaves a discussion vacuum, and that is often filled by religion.

So if a democrat is elected to office in '08?

It was only a suggestion. Sorry.

It was only a suggestion. Sorry.Religion was a big issue back when Clinton was in office. Abortion, assisted suicide, homosexual rights, all have been topics for years and years around here.

Please don't feel it necessary to apologize. I'm not being critical, just responding to your question as best I can.
