    It just occured to me that most people associate Religion with the political right, but this is misleading because i have read Left wing Religion and in fact have been quite influenced by it, just thought i would pass on some useless information for your disposal

    Thanks. I HATE listening to crap from the "religious right". I hope the religious left keeps it's mouth shut while it's ahead.

    Politics and religion don't mix, no matter who I vote for.

    Re: Left wing Religion

    Actually i was thinking also that Philosophy and Religion can be left orientated but not necessarily political, does that make sense?
    Any way i am reading a book at the moment now on our democracy here in Australia, and one of the themes is we should stop thinking in terms of left and right, and instead see what we all share, and just agree to disagree on the rest. Good point i guess, because i think if the ship sinks it wont matter where you are politically anyway, especially when the powerful use the left-right divide to gain more power anyway.

    But your wrong because Jesus Christ ultimately was a political activist of the left

    Now is this what you would advocate if your country was under the same material conditions?

    The religous right are being used by Bush for his political advantage, why not counteract that with a broader interpretation regarding religion. Ultimately you cant seperate Religion and Politics any more than you can seperate Religion and Life or Politics and Life.
