15. You will never stop them.
This has been going on since the country was founded....there has always been a strong religous component in US culture, that sometimes found its way into politics. I think you could see things like abolitionism, and the drive for prohibition, as past examples of religion in politics.

And, since this is a democracy, you cant just shut these folks out of poltiics, either. Thats just the way it is.

What we are seeing now, with the Religous Right, is just the latest example of this.
