Political religious

In the words of Carl Schmitt,
Every religious, moral, economic, ethical, or other antithesis transforms into a political one if it is sufficiently strong to group human beings effectively according to friend and enemy... A religious community which wages wars against members of other religious communities or engages in other wars is already more than a religious community; it is a political entity. [Schmitt, C. (2007) The concept of the political Chicago: The university of Chicago Press, p. 37]
