In ancient times (pre-1980), many so-called leaders utilized the postulations of religion to augment and sometimes supplant political power. Nowadays, in a more PC-aware climate, it is considered low-handed and even unconstitutional to invoke a religious belief as a basis for political law, issue stance or campaign strategy. To do so risks the raising of eyebrows in the thinking community at the least, and political suicide in the extreme. Would that we lived in a climate such as this.
