"Politics has changed religion - it's like mixing ice cream with horse manure. It doesn't do anything to the manure but it ruins the ice cream. This has caused great harm to religion - we will live to regret the error." - Rev. Tony Campolo
Good quote but in some twist of irony, Campolo is a bit guilty of this as well though from the more liberal end of the political spectrum. Nevertheless, some food for thought.
