Religious leaders say on Easter that faith and politics are inseparable
Influential pastor Rick Warren defended the place of religion in politics during a television interview that aired Sunday morning, arguing that “faith is simply a world view.” Warren made his statements only a few weeks after a Pew Research Center survey showed 38 percent of Americans -- an all-time high -- believe political leaders spend too much time talking about religion. A majority, 54 percent, said churches should stay out of political debates. The role of religion in politics has been a subject of debate during the presidential election. The three leading Republican candidates have described a “war on religion” in America.
