Greg Boyd and the Religion of Politics

Here’s some straight-forward empirical common sense from Greg Boyd; the kind that a few years back cost him about twenty percent of his congregation. What I find a bit intriguing in this otherwise “Well, yeah… no kidding” post is Boyd’s remark:

“It’s what fuels religion and politics. In fact, after watching both national conventions the last two weeks, I’m beginning to think these are not two distinct things.”

I have this armchair opinion that when Boyd says something like this, he really means that that’s what he’s thinking. I’m a little curious to see if we’ll start seeing posts on investigating the idea that religion and politics are indeed the same thing. It could be interesting. And I also have to tip my hat to him for encouraging us to lay down religion for the sake of the Kingdom. We need more preachers who will say this.
