Religion and Right Wing Politics
You may have addressed this already... though I couldn't find it.
There is something bothering me that doesn't make much sense to me... why right wing politics endorses religion, and even makes use of it in their propaganda? And why the left wing politics is more secular?!
Why this connection exists? Are there historical or cultural reasons?
This makes no sense to me because I can argue that Christian philosophy is more social in nature and not so much individualistic.
Is there such a thing as a secular right wing party?! Even in my European country, our right wing parties make religious promote religious ideals. Is this just a strategy to win votes?! If so, why doesn't the left-wing uses this too?

"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter." (Max Planck)
"the existence of mind in some organism on some planet in the universe is surely a fact of fundamental significance. Through conscious beings the universe has generated self-awareness. This can be no trivial detail, no minor byproduct of mindless, purposeless forces. We are truly meant to be here." Paul Davies
