The political is religious

"Religion has long been a powerful force in American politics, of course, for good and ill. The difference with the more traditional varieties of religion was the open acknowledgment that they were religious."

E.g., Newsweek editor Evan Thomas : "I mean, in a way, Obama is standing above the country, above the world. He’s sort of God."
