Political decisions driven by religion?

Articles: "If American public policy turns its back on science to embrace religion, we will lose access to the tools that allowed us to create our dominant place in the world. We will forsake those successful tools in favor of the ideals of theocracy so repugnant to us in societies like Iran and Taliban Afghanistan. While the debate between science and religion in politics will continue, history shows that cooperation between science and politics has repeatedly played critical roles in protecting human freedom. The history of religion in politics can claim no such historical success. "
