Religion & politics

I have always liked British politics and its separation from religion meant that this is truely a secular country. I just wish Malaysian politics is more like that where a committed non-religious secular opposition would emerge and the main National Front would strip all their religious/racial tones.

So its quite sad to see religion (in the form of the Catholic church) suddenly deciding to play into politics by mimicking their counterparts in America, this time on the issue of abortion.

Sad sad sad...

Hmm...
I thought both had always been related, ever since the ancient times... so no biggie :D

Maybe in Malaysia, but as the nation moves toward openess I am sure there will be hardliners who would seek to force through their ideologies.
