I started reading God & Government: An Insider’s View on the Boundaries Between Faith & Politics by Charles Colson a couple of days ago.  In first chapter titled “Kingdoms in Conflict” he shared a couple of quotes that stood in stark contrast from one another.

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction

– Blaise Pascal

Without Christian culture and Christian hope, the modern world would come to resemble a half-derelict fun-fair, gone nasty and poverty-racked, one enormous Atlantic City.

– Russell Kirk

What do you think the appropriate role of faith in government should be?
