I can say I'm of a certain party, politically, because I side with them on more issues, and think they bode better for the future than the other party. But I surely don't believe a whole lot government / politicians, or any party says! Because you know why? If I did believe a lot of what they said, it could become a religion to me! And most of what I would have to say about it would do more harm than good. It's not Religion (any spirituality/philosophy other than my own) that's the cause of all wars, it's human nature and false beliefs about (the) others..
