In keeping my experiment with short entries -- I am only going to make a quick observation about political devotion.
Separation of church and state is a wonderful thing -- for both the church and the state. But what happens if all faith and devotion is simply transferred to the state?
The religious fervor of the past -- Evangelism, Crusades, etc. -- is now given to political parties.
We do not benefit from separation of church and state when the state (or party) is revered like a deity.
