My point is that there isn't politics and then religion as something seperate.........there's really a spectrum with a broad overlap. This is precisely why Islam, for example, is so great a danger as it is actually highly political yet masquerades as a 'religion'.

Islam is a religion. Only in most Arab countries, there is still no separation of religion from the state (except perhaps Turkey, although there is still religion has some influence on policy).

And do not forget that many Christian communities affected and want to have a direct impact on state policy (especially in the USA).

Christian radicals are just as dangerous as the Islamic radicals.
