God in Politics
To what degree should religion have a place in politics. In a debate that sows divisions both within and among nations, some argue for a secular public domain that clearly separates the two; others uphold a deep connection.
1) Do religious values increasingly drive politics?
2) Is the "separation of church and state" strictly a western notion?
3) Since religion and politics are often intertwined and indistinguishable, what is "religious" and what is "political"?
