For example, if my idea of a god and what that god expects of me motivates me then instead of “imposing” that idea on others, why not share it by my own way of behaving toward others?
By their fruit you will know them. Secondly, if my preference for a certain way of civic politics is so important to me, why not show its value by the way I talk and act and be ready to give reasons or my action when asked to do so? But, I might add most importantly, I think we must also be ready to listen and learn from what others believe, trust and practice in their religion and politics.
Our forbearers did it and it worked ... for a while. Why not try again?
Religion is the politics of what we think, say and do. Politics is always close at hand.
