Religion and Patriotism

A note of clarification: Based on the context of this quote, Moore isn’t advocating that religion and politics have nothing to do with each other. He’s advocating that we must not use Christianity as a means to an end.

Once a religion has become a means to an end, of national unity or public morality or anything else, it is no longer a supernatural encounter with God and is just another program.
