Though my darling wife is a minister, I suspect she'd agree with this article about the melding of religion and politics:

The American ayatollahs of the religious right are the most clear and present danger to this country's well being and happiness.

There's a quote from Dune about the toxic mixture of religion and politics, I wish I could remember it.

All religion, all of man's affairs are, except for an individual death, political. Mass death is always political.
Just remember there is no such thing as 'ethical politics', and very little ethical religion. After all all are the creations of man, who at base is just that, base.

“When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong - faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it's to late.”
