It's not a secret....
But Religion and Government are in effect crutches. And like any crutch that is over used, it can do more harm than good. Hence, my serious like of seeing the lines blurred and erased between the two. The BBC has a decent story written by an outsider inside the religious right. While its obvious the writer is not 'one of them' he's not blatantly biased it’s a well done piece.
