"religion and politics ought not to mix...in my opinion of course"

I can't see how they cannot mix. How can a person have a set of beliefs about a Creator and not have them affect the way they react to Creation? The Bible (both testaments) are deeply political sets of books - in particular, the OT which has whole books devoted to how people should live in society. It makes as much sense to say "people and politics should not mix"
