"Cool. Can we get religion out of government?" - GoofyHoofy


No, I don't think so. Government is made up of people and people are a matrix or mandala of everything of everything that they have been immersed in all their lives. Our thinking and the way we live is influenced by everything that has happened to us in our entire lives, even when we have consciously tried to negate it.

From the moment we are born each one of us is influenced by our parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, friends, teachers, peer group, books we have read, music we listen to, etc. It is downloaded into our brain and turns us into the people we are throughout our lives.

It is irrelevant what label we choose to wear, like "atheist" Christian, Muslim, etc. Those labels are just words, and they are temporary, and are not who we truly are. At best they only partially tell who we are.

The "real me" is buried and hidden deep inside me and only rised to the surface during times of stress and trials in life. Otherwise I keep hidden who I really am.
