In a society that is growing radically more secular every day, I’d say we have more to fear from political dogmatism than religious dogmatism. We have more to fear from those who let their politics determine their faith practices and who turn their religious communities into political armies. We have more to fear from people who look to politics as a substitute for faith.

David Brooks

Religion is that to which we bind ourselves to and I think it more human nature than we realize to bind ourselves to our tribes, whether they be churches, political parties, ideologies, football teams, and NASCAR racers. The problem is that we confuse faith with religion, they are related but different.
