Religion and Politics in Brazil (Blog do Noblat) – O Globo (newspaper)

Blog do Noblat’ compiles articles from several different influential journalists from Brazil. This article was written by journalist Ruy Fabiano. It starts with a quick overview of the interrelation of religion and politics in different countries and then analyzes such dichotomy through a Brazilian perspective citing cases from the Brazilian Supreme Court in which religious values played an important role in the final decision. It also talks about the impact of religion on the most recent presidential elections. (Note that this article may not reflect in its entirety what the Brazilian society thinks of religion and politics but instead personal views of the journalist.)
