There was a program on over the weekend on that very subject, but I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, and probably won’t for another week.
Suffice it to say, I guess I have trouble relating to the American situation. In Canada, if religion influences politics, nobody talks about it. Although the current conservative party does have religious undertones, they still have to have a non-religious justification for most of what they do. Mainstream religion here can mean a few different things, since at least one major Christian group up here (the United Church of Canada) is quite liberal in its views.
But I think the sad truth is that no matter what nation you live in, the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. People will always try to manipulate the government into catering to their own agendas—be they financial / corporate, military, or religious.
