Religion and politics are intertwined because they both affect the welfare of the people albeit in different ways. The problem is that religion fails to serve the whole but used these days to solidify the authority of a particular religious segment at the expense of the whole. Consequently religions should be self supporting instead of feeding at the public furrow by persisting on a tax exemption. Let believers sustain their religious beliefs and preacher and fancy (or modest) edifices and abscond from political arena. When a church squanders millions of dollars to endorse their political perspectives, they should lose any tax exempt status they benefit from. Let them focus on feeding the poor and clothing the naked and then they will be too active to focus on telling non-believers how to conduct their lives and behavior.
