Re:religion is like any other large organization

Some would argue (I among them) that you cannot be Christian and politician. The requirements of the former, to be humble servants of humanity, is completely inconsistent with the latter, power and control.

You can see this in the kind of religiosity politicians have. It isn't Christianity at all but a kind of pseudo-judeo-christian civil religion. Presidents often invoke the name of God but rarely if ever invoke the name of Jesus.
