What Religion & Politics Have in Common

For all the talk about separation of church and state, I got to thinking the other night and realized that political and religious people have a lot in common.    So here’s a list of a few similarities between them…

1.  What they believe is very personal

2.  Both are willing to go to war (literally) to enforce their views

3.  Most really don’t know why they believe/vote what they do

4.  No matter what, their way is right and mine is wrong

5.  Most prefer being told what to believe/vote by their leaders

6.  Conversion involves showing you why you’re wrong, not why they’re right.

7.  There’s a lot of useless stuff people lump into it that has absolutely nothing to do with the core beliefs

8.  Standing up for what they believe will make them say or do crazy things
