    Should Religious Leaders Be Involved In Politics?

    No. They are biased in their judgements towards others of different faiths and beliefs, therefore should not be in charge of decisions affecting entire states or countries.

    I believe that religious leaders should not be involved in politics and are definitely not the best contenders for politics because it creates an imbalance of power within a community.

    In today's society, where diversity prevails, giving authority to a certain religious leader will alienate the people of minority and there is a strong possibility that religious leader's religious beliefs would influence all his/her decisions and everyone under his/her rule might be coerced to follow and practice the beliefs and traditions of the religion in power.

    Perhaps they would become much wiser by taking part in politics. Very often religious people have a very naive perspective on life.

    Sincere regards

    that is the single worse mistake a country can make in my opinion. if you look at the world, you will notice that countries that have religious leaders as heads of their country tend to be caotic, have poor human rights and seem to be in some kind of conflict most of the time. religion should be for personal use not as a way to run a country.
