• Thou shall not steal unless its politics or government funds meant for the people. Thou shall not covet government jobs for votes. Thou shall go to jail for stealing unless thou art a politician or government employee. Thou shall not tell lies unless thou art a political or government employee.
• Yes. This false notion of faith and secular has led to confusion among Naga Christians. Maybe this is why spirituality coexists hand in hand with corruption and all kinds of immorality
• Sadly yes. When will people realise that Christ is the Lord of all. This dichotomy is not right. If we are to witness positive change in our society we cannot create this dichotomy.
• Yes people separate their Christian faith from the political culture and this is the problem. This is why people have no problem being corrupt in their professional and social life but very religious in their spiritual life. When will people realise that our Christian faith cannot be approached in piece-meal fashion.
• Obviously yes. Frankly speaking we are a land of tribalism and rampant backdoor appointments. Even pastors keep quite on backdoor appointments and corruption in their church. Big mismatch between holy beliefs and actual practice.
• Obviously yes. Proxy votes, tribalism, backdoor appointments and many other vices we see commonly in our society is not taught by our Christian faith. We don't care about our religious beliefs during elections.
• Yes. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad. Everything about religion is not good. If we always make decisions based on religion, we will become intolerant like ISIS and RSS. Politics gave us democracy and elections and so on. Rational people take the best of both worlds and avoid the harmful extremes
• Yes. For instance some of us believe in Christianity at personal level but don't mind joining a political party that has anti-Christian records or constitution. But sometimes this separation can be good too because not all religious doctrines are good. If we strictly interpret religion verbatim, we will have a very intolerant society like denial of equality to women and so on.
• Politicians new weapon have taken The name faith. It's like they are being trained to play with the minds of the people, they pled in the name of faith and what they do is just hunch back sit and relax and watch the happening in the society . And it goes on.
• As it says "Money is the root of all evils." Politics is a platform to make easy money. So most of the faithful believers too involves in politics. They do not practice what they preached.... clean election is a dream for our beloved State. Lord help us to wake up from our dreams to reality.
• People in Nagaland are money is the religion and politics.. money is the answer. Money and only money.
• While some may say yes, the fact is that the political structure has also crept in on the socio-cultural aspect of the Christian dominant settings of Nagaland. Forget about other political settings in the secular world, the church itself is no more free from the clutches of people with political agendas working behind the scenes even as leaders of the church. We hardly find worthy people based on Biblical standings of the election of elders working in our churches anymore.
• Many Christian organizations are involved in politics.
• No. Our Christian morals are always with us. Just because we fail sometimes during our political life does not mean we forget our Maker. Our Christian faith always guide us consciously or unconsciously.
• Majority of the Nagas are Christians only by birth but not by faith and belief. It will not be correct to claim that Nagas are majority Christians.
