the religious in politics

I often wonder about the role of the religious in politics, and with the election of Obama in the US, some now see the influence as good as gone - as detailed in an article in the Washington Post. It seems to me that there are lessons we can learn too from this here.

The article comments that the heart of Christianity is the family unit, the home, and it is in and through these units the church influences society, and not in the "shrill and nagging manner" we often seem to do.

I also like this quote that if we do want to see influence in our culture and society, then we should start following the commands of Jesus and people will be so amazed that they will be attracted to Him".
