I agree with Thomas Hobbes political philosophy. Does anybody else agree with him? I say most because I don't think a commonwealth needs to exclusively Christian in any way.

I don't think anyone needs to be Christian, or any other kind of religion, in any way.

Religion is a great tool to help maintain control over your subjects, though.

That's about all it's good for. Keeping control over the gullible and an emotional crutch for the needy.
