God and Issues

Here's an article in USA Today that talks about how your views about the nature of God are correlated with the position you take on political issues.

  1. I like the idea of grouping people in this way rather than by religion.

    It seems like people of different faiths who believe in one type of God have more in common than they may with people of the same faith with a different view of God.

    Though they might not be likely to admit it, fundamentalist Christians, Jews, or Muslims who believe in an Authoritative God likely have a lot in common with each other. Probably more than they would share with people who "share" their faith, though view God as distant.

    It would be interesting to take speeches of different leaders (fundamentalist preachers, rabbis, and imams), strip them of all terminology differences, and see if they agree with each other.
