CLINTON AND SANDERS BRAWL OVER RELIGION AND POLITICS: donald trump will be pleased.
Hillary Clinton seeks to distance herself from an alleged conspiracy by Democratic Party leadership to label Sanders an “atheist” — thus frightening off southern evangelicals etc.
Mrs Clinton comments that it is “wrong and unacceptable” to bring religion into the political process.
A politically shrewd remark perhaps.
But rather question-begging.
Why is it wrong?
What does “wrong” mean?
Isn’t distinguishing between right and wrong an entirely religious act?
Mrs Clinton herself introduces a religious act into a political debate.
A better principle would be that we must ALWAYS bring religion into political debate.
Political debate doesn’t need no religion – it needs more and better religion.
