In my parish’s book club we’ve been reading the Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis. I’m really digging the part especially that says if you attach politics to religion it will move that person away from God. ie a person can be swayed towards the political nature of organizing pamphlets and think she’s doing good works when in actuality she’s moving away from God.


@cyan Good reminder. I think it's OK to have political opinions, ideally informed by one's faith, but that its important not to make politics (or anything else) a false idol.

I think it was CS Lewis that also said that since a human soul is immortal, the fate of any one person's soul is more important than the fate of the Roman Empire. Because one will pass away and one will not.
